Manchester City are playing the best football in Europe and some of the best the Premier League has ever seen, according to Jamie Carragher.

Four days after their Carabao Cup triumph at Wembley, Manchester City showed no complacency to thrash Arsenal 3-0 for the second game running, leaving Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher in awe of their performance.

"What we saw tonight was the best football in Europe," the former Liverpool defender said after the game. "Whether City go on and win the Champions League remains to be seen, but the football they displayed against Arsenal was breathtaking."

"It's some of the best football I've ever seen in this league, and I've come up against some great sides."

"We criticised Arsenal for not being aggressive enough and said they couldn't win the league playing too much football," he added. "City are winning it with that type of football, but there is greater intensity, that is the key thing. That first-half display was a testament to Pep Guardiola."

"You usually take your foot off the gas after winning a cup competition, but to perform like that shows why he's not just a manager who goes and buys the best players," Carragher concluded. "The intensity he has shown at all the clubs he's managed shows he is a special, special manager."
