Manchester City centre-back Kolo Toure has drawn comparisons between his current table-topping City side and the unbeaten Arsenal team he was a part of in the 2003-04 season.

The Ivorian defender praised both teams for their strength in depth and said City's ability to grind out results without key players reminded him of his old title-winning Arsenal team.

Manchester City currently sit two points clear of rivals United as they look to win their first Premier League title since 1968. With 11 Premier League games remaining both sides are eyeing a potential showdown at the Eithad Stadium on April 30, which could determine the eventual destination of the Premier League trophy.

Speaking to reporters about the comparison, Toure said: "The quality is the same because we had 24 great players at Arsenal and here is the same, we also have 24 great players. Here you can change any player.

"David Silva didn't play [against Bolton] but we still won the game. [Sergio] Aguero didn't play but we still won the game. In our time at Arsenal it was like this. Dennis Bergkamp was on the bench, Kanu was on the bench but we still managed to win the games."

City take a break from Premier League action as they face Sporting in the first leg of their last 16 Europa League tie on Thursday night, before travelling to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea on Sunday.
