Arsène Wenger believes Manchester City’s toughest test is still to come if they are to emulate Arsenal’s unbeaten season.

The ‘Invincibles’ recorded their incredible feat in 2003/04 - the first of its kind in the Premier League - but the current leaders are going well after recording 11 wins and two draws from their opening 13 fixtures.

Wenger has been impressed by Roberto Mancini’s side but he thinks they could slip up at some point.

“As long as they have not been beaten then yes [it’s possible to go unbeaten],” he told Arsenal Player. “It looks unlikely but you never know.

“You have to go through the whole winter when you play in the Champions League - we did that. In the FA Cup as well, the Semi-Finals of the Champions League - to do that together is very difficult.

“But I think in the modern game you need a bit of luck - watching the game against Liverpool they could have been beaten.

“Overall hopefully [they don’t go unbeaten] because we want to get as close as possible to them and it's important to beat them.”
