Arsenal Glory days:On this day in 2004, Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal completed the only unbeaten season in Premier League

The 2003–04 season was the 109th in the

history of Arsenal Football Club. It began on

1 July 2003 and concluded on 30 June 2004,

with competitive matches played between

August and May. The club ended the Premier

League campaign as champions without a

single defeat – a record of 26 wins and 12

draws.

 

Arsenal fared less well in the cups, eliminated

in the FA Cup and League Cupsemi-finals

to Manchester United and Middlesbrough

respectively, and at the quarter-final stage of

the UEFA Champions League to Chelsea.

 

Arsenal went a record 49 consecutive top-

flight league games unbeaten from May 2003

to October 2004, breaking Nottingham

Forest’s previous record of 42 set between

November 1977 and November 1978.

 

The run ended in controversy at Old Trafford

as a harshly-awarded penalty spurred

Manchester United to a 2-0 win in October

2004.
