UCL: Paul Merson reveals only team that can beat Manchester City



Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has revealed that the Gunners are the only team that can beat Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, UCL, this season,

Man City, who are the reigning champions, booked their place in the last-8 after beating Copenhagen 3-1 in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash on Wednesday, winning 6-2 on aggregate.

“Watching Real Madrid who are one of their nearest rivals in the Champions League and they are falling over the line, it shows you how good Man City are,” Merson told talkSPORT.

“I don’t see anybody touching them [Manchester City] over two legs, Real Madrid tonight, no way, I watched Bayern Munich last night – no way.”


He added, “I think the nearest ones to them are going to be Arsenal. I really think Arsenal are the only ones that can push them over two legs. We have seen Arsenal beat Man City at home, and if we saw them in the Champions League and they got a goal head start, who knows, so I see Arsenal as the only ones that can beat Man City.”

Arsenal, meanwhile, will face Porto in the last-16 second leg tie next Tuesday at Emirates having lost 1-0 in the first leg tie.
