Arsene Wenger: Don't compare Man City with Arsenal's Invincibles - we didn't have petrol money

Arsène Wenger has a taken a swipe at Manchester City by claiming his ‘Invincibles’ side achieved success without “petrol” money. City have made the best start to a season in Premier League history after recording 15 successive top-flight victories. Pep Guardiola’s side have also scored more than 50 goals and in 17 games have earned 49 points. They have managed to remain unbeaten too and that has naturally led to comparisons with Wenger’s 'Invincibles’ who were unbeaten in the league throughout 2003-04. However, while the Arsenal manager has admitted Guardiola’s side could replicate his team’s achievements, he has had a dig at the league leaders over the financial backing they receive from their Abu Dhabi owners. Indeed, when asked to compare the two sides, Wenger said: “We had no petrol but ideas, they have petrol and ideas. “So that makes it more efficient and, overall, yes - they are like that, so everybody expects and projects that they will last. Why not? It can happen [that Manchester City go the whole season unbeaten], but there is still a long way to go. Jens Lehmann exclusive: The secrets behind The Invincibles “At the moment I think everything goes for them inside the games, but maybe as well they have the quality to turn it in their favour.” When pressed to clarify what he meant by “petrol and ideas”, Wenger replied: “They have resources. Money and quality is what I wanted to say and in their management and players they have everything that is needed to be successful. “It’s still not easy, they still have to respect that achievement.” While Manchester City are streaking away at the top of the table, Arsenal are hoping to get their top-four race back on track against Newcastle at the Emirates on Saturday. Arsenal were toothless at West Ham Credit: REUTERS/David Klein The Gunners have slipped to seventh in the Premier League after being held in their last two games against Southampton and West Ham. Wenger believes those results are a testament to how it is now harder than ever to break down teams from outside the top six, as supporters of those clubs have lowered their expectations. He explained that, unlike in the past, fans of those sides are now happy for their teams to shut up shop and claim a point, which makes it harder for the likes of Arsenal to find a way through their defence. “That has changed. Because first of all the crowds accept it,” said Wenger. “They start with the idea that if it’s a nil-nil, it’s a good result. Every tackle they make, the crowd is 'Wahhhh!' “You would say as long as you don’t score the first goal you’re in a position where you have to take a gamble. What is even worse - you know if you have not scored in the last 10 minutes you will have to go through one moment, they will find one moment, one free kick or corner where you’ll be in trouble and that’s what could’ve happened at West Ham.”
