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