Arsenal v Ostersunds FK - UEFA Europa League
Yes, this team can beat City

The Carabao Cup final beckons upon us as Manchester City will take on Arsenal in a clash where the latter are the favourites to beat the former. And why not? Pep Guardiola’s men are 16 points ahead of their nearest rival, Manchester United, and 27 points ahead of the Gunners.

This a team that have scored 79 goals in the league in just 27 games and, on their day, can beat any team in the world—and that includes the mighty Barcelona and Real Madrid.

So, how on this earth, pray tell, could Arsenal possibly ‘destroy’ Man City? They could—and here are the 5 reasons why…

At one point in the game, the Reds were leading 4-1 against the best side of the league. They could have easily scored more and completed an utter humiliation of Pep Guardiola’s men. Indeed, Klopp’s men showed that even the best of England can be broken.

Despite the fact that they conceded two more to finish the match 4-3, Liverpool showed that attacking with vertical pace while on the counter dismantles the Manchester outfit.
