Wenger: City not unstoppable
London: Arsene Wenger says Manchester City are “not unstoppable” and claims the referee had an “atrocious impact” in Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to the league-leaders earlier this month. City continued their blistering form in their win over the Gunners - who face Spurs on Saturday - to move eight points clear at the top of the Premier League, having won 10 of their 11 league encounters. “They are a good side but they are not an unstoppable side,” he told BeIN Sports. “If you look at the expected goals, it was 0.7 for them and 0.6 for us, it was a very tight game.
“They created very little and very little shots on target, just one more than us.” Wenger felt the match was a tighter affair than the scoreline suggested and inflicted blame on referee Michael Oliver for his role in the match, after City’s third goal was allowed despite goalscorer Gabriel Jesus appearing to be in an offside position.
