Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez feels Manchester City's squad has better depth than BARCELONA!

Martinez believes City's depth in midfield creators gives them the edge on the European champs.

He explained: "You need to remember that in any system you will have key players - and at Manchester CityDavid Silva has been outstanding.

"At Barcelona the key man is obviously Messi and at Real Madrid you have Ronaldo. There are not too many options for those teams if those players get injured - but that is not the case with City.

"In Samir Nasri they have another outstanding player who can fill the Silva role. And if you look at their squad they have two or three players to cover every position. That's why I feel they are in a better position to kick on than even Barca were."
