Glenn Hoddle insists Manchester City will NOT emulate Arsenal's Invincibles.
City have made a stunning start to the Premier League season, dropping only two points from 17 games, and have surged 11 points clear at the top of the table.
Hoddle fully expects Pep Guardiola's side to go on and win the title, declaring the football they are playing right now as 'scintillating'.
But the ex-England boss believes City are too 'unbalanced' to match the feat of Arsenal's 2003/04 side – the only Premier League team to go an entire season unbeaten.
"If you are going to ask me who is going to win it, it would be City," said Hoddle, speaking on the Weekend Sports Breakfast.
"I thought they would win it at the start of the season but I didn't think they would be as strong as they are now. But someone can upset them
"Defensively, they are taking less risks. The 'keeper has really strengthened them up. He is good with his feet, but he knows when to not take a risk and that has put them 40 per cent up the ladder defensively. But I think someone will nip them in the bud, I really do.
"Arsenal had some real strength in the midfield. They were really solid and it was a real balanced team.
"Fortunately for all the neutrals, this [Man City side] is an unbalanced team. It is all attacking players and it is wonderful to see."
City will bid to make it 16 consecutive wins against Hoddle's former club Tottenham on Saturday evening – a match you can listen to live on talkSPORT.
Hoddle says Spurs will be hampered by the loss of defensive duo Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez, but believes they are capable of ending City's unbeaten run.
"You are not going to out-play them, you are not going to out-possession them, but Tottenham could hit them on the counter and that is where they have been exciting this year," he said.
"You have got Otamendi and Mangala playing today – they are not at their strongest defensively Man City – so you have got to try and get at them."
