Manchester City defender Kolo Toure insists they'd be a match for Arsenal's Invincibles.

Touré has likened Manchester City to the Arsenal "Invincibles" he played for in 2003-04 and admitted a league title medal this season would compensate for his suspension for failing a drug test.

Touré told the Guardian: "The quality is the same because we had 24 great players at Arsenal and here is the same, we also have 24 great players. Here you can change any player. David Silva didn't play [against Bolton], but we still won the game. [Sergio] Agüero didn't play, but we still won the game.

"In our time at Arsenal it was like this. Dennis Bergkamp was on the bench, Kanu was on the bench, but we still managed to win the games. That's really important when you have a big squad like that, that you can change, give some players a rest and this can be really helpful come the end of the season."
