The last time that Arsenal won the Premier League title was during the 2003-04 season and they managed to do this in a superb form as Arsene Wenger pushed his team to an undefeated season. Arsenal didn’t lose a single match of that season and after such an impressive accomplishment, the team was nicknamed as: ‘’The Invincibles’’.
There is no doubt whatsoever that this Arsenal team was the best one that the club has ever had in their history as it had superstar players including: Lehmann, Bergkamp, Henry, Pires, Viera, Gilberto and even the lesser known players managed to stand out in this season.
Arsenal enjoyed the time of their lives in this season but things began to fall apart after the 2003-04 was over and the Premier League club has failed to lift the league title or any other really big piece of silverware. It’s been over 10 years since Arsenal has won the Premier League title but Arsene Wenger believes that this drought will be reaching it’s end soon as the French manager is certain about having his best team since 2004.
Arsene Wenger voiced his confidence in the team that’s under his control as he said: “I believe we have the squad now to compete for the title. I am very happy with the squad I have, but we always look to strengthen. If that turns up, we will always look to strengthen. Chelsea won it by a margin last year, so they are the favorites. After that, let’s see how it goes. After the first 15 games, we will know more.”
The veteran manager is certain that he has a squad which is good enough to compete and make a genuine charge for the Premier League title but their start of the season has been a fairly underwhelming one as Arsenal lost their opening match of the season after losing against West Ham United.
From the 3 opening matches of the season that Arsenal has played so far, they have collected 4 points from the possible 9 points.
If this truly is the best Arsenal team since 2004 just how Arsene Wenger has stated then they will have to step it up and avoid dropping any further points in these early stages of the season.
