Arsenal - The Invincibles

Paul Scholes says Manchester City can go through the season unbeaten.

After watching their impressive 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday, Scholes does not see many sides troubling the champions and believes they can emulate Arsenal's "Invincibles", who went undefeated throughout the 2003/04 season.

"The more you look at the City team, I don't see where they're going to get beat," the former United midfielder says.

Scholes sees Liverpool, who are two points behind City, as being the champions' nearest challengers, but says the strength in depth available to Pep Guardiola makes his team candidates to emulate Arsenal’s record.

"I think Liverpool will probably be the closest, but I just think they [City] are that good, they are in control," Scholes says.

"You look at the bench as well today. [Gabriel] Jesus, not brought on, a brilliant centre-forward, [Ilkay] Gundogan, they bring on, scores a goal. They've just got quality in every position.

"I think if they are at it every game, they won't lose a game."
