The only side that can beat Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, UCL, this season, according to Arsenal legend Paul Merson, is the Gunners.

In the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash on Wednesday, Man City, the defending champions, beat Copenhagen 3-1 to advance to the final eight. They won 6-2 overall.

Merson told talkSPORT, “Watching Real Madrid, who are one of their nearest rivals in the Champions League, and they are falling over the line, it shows you how good Man City are.”

“I don’t see anybody touching them [Manchester City] over two legs, Real Madrid tonight, no way, I watched Bayern Munich last night – no way.”

He added, “I think the nearest ones to them are going to be Arsenal. I really think Arsenal are the only ones that can push them over two legs. We have seen Arsenal beat Man City at home, and if we saw them in the Champions League and they got a goal head start, who knows, so I see Arsenal as the only ones that can beat Man City.”

Arsenal, meanwhile, lost the first leg tie 1-0 and will play Porto in the second leg of the last-16 tournament on Tuesday at Emirates.
