Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement believes Arsenal and Manchester City are genuine Champions League contenders.

Former Chelsea coach Clement is making a big impact at Real this season.

He told the Daily Mail: "Manchester United are in that transition period and Chelsea are too, a little bit — it’s not a typical Jose team compared with his last spell at Chelsea.

"All four sides are strong but, if I had to pick two, I would say Arsenal and Manchester City.

"City have matured as a team having won the league together and overcome two disappointing runs in the Champions League to now qualify.

"They have got an experienced coach who has coached here and they have added some good players. And Arsenal are looking good as well this year. I went through their team the other day and the number of creative midfielders they have — they really play now. They look strong."
