From ESPN - December 15, 2017

LONDON -- Arsene Wenger says Manchester City can match his "Invincibles" by going the entire Premier League season unbeaten, but added that Arsenal did it without the financial resources that are at Pep Guardiola's disposal.

Manchester City are off to the best Premier League start ever with 49 points from 17 games -- 10 more than Arsenal had at the same point in their 2003-04 unbeaten campaign.
