Chelsea and England full back, Ashley Cole hopes Manchester City will push his former club Arsenal out of the Premier League’s top 4.

Cole (28) says City have bought enough quality to challenge for a Champions League place.

‘I have friends at City and I hope they do really well,’ Cole told the press.

‘I really hope they finish above Arsenal – I think it’s going to be hard for City but they could do it. They may click straight away and it’s magic. I hope they do.’

Vital Man City says…

‘My admiration for Ashley has just shot up tenfold. What a bloke!’
