Everton and West Ham legend Tony Cottee believes this Manchester City team could potentially be the best side in Premier League history if they can maintain their electric form.
Speaking on Sky Sports, the former England international said: “I watched the game against Arsenal and what I loved about it was the confidence, the arrogance that comes with being a top team of being able to play out of any situation.
“You’ve got a goalkeeper passing it six yards, making an angle to be able to get the ball back from a defender and they play out from all angles.
“I think they’ve shut up shop defensively and we know what they’ve got going forward.”
Cottee then made the bold claim that City could surpass any of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United sides and even Arsenal’s Invincibles.
“This potentially could be the best Premier League team we’ve ever seen. You’ve got the ‘Invincibles’, and many Manchester United teams. Potentially, this could be the best.”
It’s still far too early to make that call for sure, hence Cottee repeatedly using the word ‘potentially’, but City have had the best start of any team in Premier League history while bossing a tricky Champions League group, and if this form continues, the sky is the limit…
