Wenger: City not un­stop­pable

Fiji Sun - - Sports -

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.
