Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger Believes Chelsea Can Match The ‘Invincibles’

The Gunners manager also revealed that he thinks football hasn’t changed much in 10 years

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that Chelsea are capable of emulating his ‘Invincibles’ side.

The Gunners boss was reacting to comments made by Blues ace Jose Mourinho, who said that football had changed too much since the 2003/04  season when it was last accomplished.

The Frenchman says this is not so and that football had not changed that much in the intervening 10 years. He believes that defending and fitness has improved, but that attacks are largely the same as they used to be.

“Everything is possible in any moment. It’s only 10 years since we did it and football has not changed in 10 years. But it’s very early to say that. We played 49 games – more than a season – so it’s a bit early,” Wenger was quoted by the Telegraph.

“In the modern game the physical levels have done up – every one is quicker – so you cannot guarantee that you will score three or four goals in every game. I don’t think teams attack much better, but they defend much better than 10 years ago.”

The West Londoners will face a serious test of their unbeaten record at Anfield on Saturday. They will be hoping to take advantage of the poor form shown by Liverpool in order to get a result on Merseyside.

Wenger’s side meanwhile will be hoping that they are able to pick up three points against Swansea City so that they can stay in the top four over the international break.
