Invincibles ranked second best team in Premier League era
Wenger's team finished the Premier League 2003/04 season undefeated, an achievement that no other side has ever repeated since then. FourFourTwo's Michael Cox rates Invincibles as the second best team after Guardiola's City that won 2017/18 campaign with 100 points.
The greatest team in Arsenal history? Probably. The best team in the Premier League era? FourFourTwo believe only Guardiola's City have delivered a more significant achievement.
"Others have triumphed with a greater points tally, or won the Champions League too. But Arsenal’s undefeated title-winning campaign remains a truly remarkable achievement: the only incidence of this happening since the 19th century.
"Undefeated runs are often characterised by resilient defences, but Arsenal were an incredible attacking unit boasting the speed of Thierry Henry, the creativity of Dennis Bergkamp and reliable goalscoring on either flank from Freddie Ljungberg and Robert Pires.
"Gilberto Silva and Patrick Vieira provided the strength that Arsenal have lacked ever since, while Sol Campbell was the only natural defender in a backline featuring Ashley Cole, Lauren and Kolo Toure – three players converted from more attacking positions by Arsene Wenger, summarising his emphasis upon technical skill. Jens Lehmann is remembered for his blunders, but in his debut Premier League campaign he simply didn’t lose all season.
"Arsenal boasted the league’s best attack and its best defence; they could dominate possession and counter-attack brilliantly in turn. There’s a reason why Arsenal’s 'L 0', rather than Chelsea’s 'GC 15' remains the Premier League’s most revered statistic."
