Manchester City v Arsenal  - Premier League

"Europe's most powerful club?" for quite some time, the answer to this question was either Real Madrid or Barcelona. Bayern Munich and Juventus too made themselves relevant occasionally. But, when was the last time a Premier League side made themselves honourable for the title of being the strongest European side? Certainly not in recent times. Well, the same is not the case anymore as the Citizens are at the peak of their form and are on a dream run.

Let us see 5 reasons which show Man City is the most powerful club in Europe at the moment.

#5 Domestic domination

Manchester City v Stoke City - Premier League
Manchester City this season so far- Played:22; Points: 62; Wins:20; Draws:2; Loss:0

Manchester City have put in stellar performances in the league so far. Barring Barcelona, no other team has displayed such brilliance in their respective domestic league so far. City's prowess is evident by looking at the league table as they are on top with a gigantic 15 points lead.

Despite the competitiveness of the other sides, City haven't tasted defeat in the domestic circuit. As mentioned before, Barcelona are the only team other than Manchester City to have not lost a single domestic league match this season. But, the Blaugrana haven't been able to dominate the league like City have. Pep Guardiola's side have scored an astonishing 64 goals, a ratio of nearly three goals a game!

Out of 22 matches played, the Sky Blues have won 20 and drawn 2 (against Everton and Crystal Palace). City are going strong in the Cups as well and have one foot in the League Cup final. They started the FA Cup on a winning note as well.
