'Manchester City Reaching Record-Breaking 100 Premier League Points Is Better Than Being Invincibles'

'Manchester City Reaching Record-Breaking 100 Premier League Points Is Better Than Being Invincibles'

Manchester City's remarkable achievement of reaching 100 points en route to the Premier League title has been hailed as 'better' than the 'Invincibles' season.

That's according to former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, who clashed with Andy Goldstein in a heated debate on talkSPORT.

Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to the Premier League title without a single defeat in England's top-flight league during the 2003-04 season, earning them the iconic Invincibles moniker.

However, Cundy argued that "you cannot get 100 points and not win the title, that's never been done."

The 51-year-old told talkSPORT: "Winning the league as Invincibles is magnificent, it's an incredible achievement... but accumulating more points is a bigger achievement.

"You can stay unbeaten all season and still get relegated!

"If you go and break the all-time points record... both are incredible achievements but to go an entire season and get over 100 points?!

"Of all the teams that won the title, the points that Arsenal got in their Invincibles season, they wouldn't even get in the top-four in some other seasons.

"That tells you that Arsenal's achievement is special, but that points total doesn't even get them Champions League football, they'd only get Europa League!

"You can be unbeaten all season and not win the title, but you cannot get 100 points and not win the title, that's never been done.

"Both are special, but I'd rather be part of a team that got more than 100 points in a season."

Rangers icon Ally McCoist was in the opposite camp to Cundy by claiming that Arsenal's legendary Invincibles season "would take some beating."

The 58-year-old pundit and commentator added that the Invincibles would beat Pep Guardiola's current City side.

"Getting 100 points is a brilliant achievement, it's fantastic, but there's something different about going through a campaign undefeated," McCoist said.

"It's absolutely remarkable and, for me, that's better.

"The name the 'Invincibles,' you just feel there's an invincibility about you, that nobody's going to beat you, you've got a strength in your camp, a belief, a solidity.

"And Ray [Parlour], you boys' achievement of going through that campaign, for me that would take some beating.

"I think Arsenal's Invincibles would beat this current Man City team."
