For the second time in the space of five days, Manchester City proved they’re in a completely different league to Arsenal this season
Last Sunday, they didn’t even need to be at their best to win the Carabao Cup against Arsene Wenger’s side, scoring three goals without reply.
And they triumphed by the same scoreline on Thursday night in the Premier League clash to move 30 points clear of the north London side.
While they didn’t need to be at their best in the cup final, they showed just what they’re capable in the opening 45 minutes of the league clash, scoring three incredible goals through Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane.
It was boys against men.
However, there is one man - and only one man - that believes there are some Arsenal players that would actually make Man City’s team.
That’s because former Coventry, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Hull midfielder, George Boateng, made an absolute fool of himself by naming four Arsenal stars that are good enough to play for Pep Guardiola’s side whilst on Sky Sports.
BOATENG: 4 ARSENAL PLAYERS GOOD ENOUGH FOR CITY
"In Arsenal's starting line-up, there are probably only four players that can get into Manchester City's team," Boateng began.
"I would pick Aubameyang. Ozil is good enough when he's in his prime. He's a good player.
"You've got Mkhitaryan, who just signed. I think Mkhitaryan is a good player who can do very well in the top four.
Ok, so Aubameyang, Ozil and Mkhitaryan are probably Arsenal’s three most-gifted footballers. But would they get in ahead of Sergio Aguero, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling?
No, they wouldn’t.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, Boateng went on to name the fourth Arsenal player that City could do with.
"And then, you'd probably have, if he is fit, Welbeck. If he is fit, he's a very good player but fitness has always been an issue."
Welbeck? As in Danny Welbeck? Wow.
FOOTBALL FANS REACT
And this is how football fans on Twitter reacted to Boateng’s crazy claim:
Welbeck actually started against City on Thursday night but struggled throughout the entire 90 minutes.
Yet Boateng believes he is better than Sterling, - who has scored 15 league goals this season - and Leroy Sane - who has scored eight goals and made 11 assists in the league this season.
That’s compared to Welbeck’s 22 goals in 95 appearances at Arsenal since his move from Manchester United.
