Arsene Wenger says Manchester City are not unstoppable

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken yet another shot at the state of Premier League officiating and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, saying the former Liverpool star took advantage of the referee's "naivety".

The Citizens have got off to a blistering start in the Premier League after winning 10 and drawing one of their opening 11 matches to sit eight points clear at the top of the standings.

The Gunners boss is still seething at the game - won 3-1 by Pep Guardiola's side at the Etihad.

"I believe that on the quality on the stadiums, the quality of the organization and the competition you have no doubt because they have the financial potential to do it well in Qatar" said the Arsenal boss when asked about the 2022 tournament.

Wenger is still frustrated by the decisions made in that game, but is convinced City are not unbeatable.

"A penalty is a deliberate foul in the box, it's not a provoked foul in the box, that's where the difference is and in a big game like that you have to look at the defender and what he's doing, not at what the striker is doing".

"Overall I think we were hugely punished with the third goal". At 2-1 we were in the game.

"That's why I said the referees don't work, they don't do their homework".

In 2003-04, Arsenal famously went unbeaten for all 38 matches as they claimed the title.

In a sit-down interview with beIN Sports, Wenger played down City's ability at home while missing his chance to apologise to Raheem Sterling and instead shifting his perspective on Sterling's so-called dive.

"People always want to predict what will happen", he added.

"Maybe, maybe not. But at the moment only one team has done it".
