Pires believes he has spotted similarities between Invincibles and this Arsenal side


Robert Pires believes he has spotted similarities between Arsene Wenger's current crop of players and the Invincibles.

The Arsenal legend has trained with Wenger's first team players throughout the season at London Colney, watching first hand how the team prepare for games.

And the 40-year-old believes some of the goals this team has scored are on a par with those bagged in the Invincibles era.

The former French international wrote in his Arsenal magazine column:
"Sometimes this season, I have watched the team play and I have seen some similarities to the 'Invincibles'. 
"Take the goal Tomas Rosicky scored against Sunderland, for example. It was a fantastic team goal, as delightful as the one Jack Wilshere scored against Norwich earlier in the season. 
"The movement on and off the ball, the quality of the passing, the finish - everything was perfect. 
"These are the kind of goals our team scored.
"And today, only Bayern Munich can and do score goals like those two scored by Tomas and Jack.
"It shows how good this squad is, and it will get stronger and stronger in the future."
