Manchester City vs the best of the rest from the Premier League - who would win?

West Ham United v Manchester City - Premier League

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho suggested that a ‘Man City B’ side are one of four clubs capable of winning the Premier League title.

Mourinho pointed to Man City’s bench during their 5-0 win against West Ham the previous day, which included Claudio Bravo, Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Nicolas Otamendi and Phil Foden.

People laughed at Mourinho’s comments but he could well be right.

Now, it’s David Moyes’ turn to make a remarkable claim about this City side.

He appeared on talkSPORT on Monday and claimed that Pep Guardiola’s side would probably beat a side compiled of the remaining 19 Premier League clubs.

“I was trying to think the other day if you could make a Premier League team up from all the teams that could topple Man City to win the league, and I think it would be very tough [to beat City]," Moyes said.

“Even if you had a team that included all the top players in it.”

And it got us thinking.


Is Moyes right?

Would City’s best XI beat the best XI compiled from the rest of the Premier League?

Well, we’ve decided to take a look:





Ederson vs Alisson
Winner: Alisson

Walker vs Alexander-Arnold
Winner: Alexander-Arnold

Mendy vs Robertson
Winner: Robertson

Stones vs Van Dijk
Winner: Van Dijk

Laporte vs Maguire
Winner: Laporte

Rodri vs Kante
Winner: Kante

De Bruyne vs Eriksen
Winner: De Bruyne

Silva vs Pogba
Winner: Silva

Bernardo vs Salah
Winner: Salah

Sterling vs Mane
Winner: Sterling

Aguero vs Kane
Winner: Kane

Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final: Second Leg

Having looked at the two sides, we have to disagree with Moyes on this one - we make that 7-4 to the rest of the Premier League XI.

We think, defensively, the rest of the Premier League have the advantage. Although, in midfield and attack, the two sides are very similar.

One thing is for sure, we’d absolutely love to see that match at the end of the season.

Twenty-two of the best players in the Premier League sharing the same pitch would be some sight.
