Fans Debate Whether There Is A Team In The Premier League Era That Could Match This City Side

Manchester City’s disappointing exit from the Champions League last night shouldn’t detract from the fact that domestically they have been on another level the last two seasons.

They have accumulated an incredible 183 points since the beginning of the 2017/18 campaign; a feat unmatched by any previous Premier League team.

It begs the question then whether any previous side (like Arsenal’s Invincibles or Manchester United’s treble-winning team) could have beaten them on their day.

Judging different eras can be hard as one fan in the video below mentions. Teams are just fitter these days and this Guardiola team’s pressing game would be hard to live with for any opponent.

Still, there is an argument to be made that the Citizens’ defence could be exploited, and with players like Thierry Henry, the Invincibles side would certainly have been in with a shout as one supporter also points out:

City’s ability to dominate possession would be the deciding factor I think. Their relentlessness in pursuit of the ball makes them likely to outlast any opponent in a straight shootout on the pitch.
