A piece of history
For the most part Arsenal brushed aside all-comers home and away. There were memorable wins at Elland Road, Stamford Bridge and Anfield, plus some great goals along the way. Robert Pires' winner at Liverpool in October 2003 was one of the best, while Thierry Henry produced classic after classic.
Their final record for the 2003-2004 league campaign stood at 26 wins, 12 draws and 0 losses, out of 38 games total, an unbeaten run not matched in any single season by any team in an English league division. Arsenal ended the run 49 league games unbeaten, also a national record
"To remain unbeaten in a championship like the English championship now is really unbelievable. I want to win the Champions' League but, really, this is more important. It is something amazing, something special. How can you do it?
"We will be a big trophy for the first team that beats us. Every team that plays Arsenal will treat it like a cup game. They will have a glass of wine less in the week and be well prepared. That is part of being champions.We have a great spirit and a great attitude but it will be difficult to repeat this. We can try all to be better but to do it again is very difficult. - Arsene Wenger
we won the league...
When dawn broke on April 25, 2004, Arsenal had yet to lose after 33 games of what would be an historic Premiership campaign. The title would surely be heading to Highbury; it was just a matter of where Arsne Wenger's side completed the formalities.
White Hart Lane would have been the choice of most Arsenal fans and, after second-placed Chelsea were beaten by Newcastle in an earlier kick-off, Arsenal's task became clearer. They would need just one point in the North London derby to be crowned champions.
