Yaya Hints EPL Is Tougher Than La Liga & Ligue 1

Manchester City superstar Yaya Toure has hinted that the Premier League is a tougher competition than Spain's La Liga and France's Ligue 1.

Yaya: I Feel Like A 20-Year-Old At City

Talking after City's 2-1 defeat to West Ham last weekend, Toure admitted the Premier League is a lot more competitive than it used to be, and that we will never see another famous "Invincibles" side like Arsenal had.

In the 2003-04 season, the Gunners became champions after going unbeaten in all 38 games, and Toure insists this would not be possible today.

"In 38 games you will not see 38 wins. It's impossible in the Premier League now," he told FourFourTwo.

"In Spain, La Liga, yes, and the French Ligue 1, maybe yes, but in the Premier League, no. You will never see that again.

"All the teams are spending money, buying big players. Like West Ham, even Leicester, Stoke spending on players from Barcelona.

"You can understand how the Premier League is so competitive because all the players want to come to England and want to improve, and want to play well. It's difficult, the Premier League."
