Cape Town - Arsene Wenger believes that Manchester City are the most “complete” team in the Premier League at the moment, with their attack a particular strength.

The comment comes as something of a surprise as Chelsea have started the Premier League in strong fashion with six wins from seven outings and a draw at City. The run of form sees them top of the table, five points above Manuel Pellegrini’s men. 

"I believe that maybe, going forward, City are a bit more complete," the Gunners manager told beIN Sports.
"City are more offensive. Chelsea defensively are better, but it's very difficult to say who will be in front.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal are wallowing down in eight position in the Premier league standings, but Wenger assures supporters that there is still a long way to go and they can turn their fortunes around. 

“What we want to do is be in front of both of them,” said Wenger, referring to Chelsea an City.  

“The gap is massive...nine points after seven games, I agree completely, but it is not lost."
