Premier League Top 30 moments: Number 4 – Arsenal go unbeaten in 2003-04 title-winning season as they become ‘The Invincibles’

This is the most famous Premier League campaign in history, as Arsenal went all 38 matches unbeaten in 2003-04 to earn their immortal title of The Invincibles.

With Patrick Vieira leading them from midfield, the likes of Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Dennis Bergkamp running the show in attack and Sol Campbell at center back, Ashley Cole at left back and Jens Lehmann in goal, this was a team littered with legends.

To go an entire season unbeaten is a feat for the ages and this classy Arsene Wenger side had so much style. To be this dominant was truly remarkable and at some points it felt like they may never lose a game again.

Arsenal won 26 and drew 12 of their 38 games, finishing the season on 90 points as they finished 11 points clear of second-place Chelsea.

When we talk about the best teams in Premier League history, Arsenal’s Invincibles will always be in the discussion. What a team. What a season. What an achievement. It may never be done again.
