Unbeaten Record: May 2003 – October 2004

Played 49, Won 36, Drew 13, and Lost None. The Arsenal squad set a new unbeaten league record, living long in the memory and forever in the history books. The historic run began with a thrashing of Southampton 6-1 at Highbury on May 7, 2003, after a disappointing home defeat against Leeds.

The 2003/04 campaign began with four straight wins, with Arsenal’s closest shave being a 0-0 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford. With memorable victories and unique goals, Arsène Wenger’s team proved too formidable for their Premiership rivals, clinching the Premiership with a 2-2 draw at Tottenham.

Nottingham Forest’s 42-game unbeaten record had stood for 26 years until Arsenal surpassed it with a thrilling 5-3 victory. Wenger’s team extended their record to 49 games, playing some of the finest football the English game has seen. Despite a controversial defeat at Old Trafford, Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ will never be forgotten.
