Arsenal’s ‘Invincible’ side of 2003/04 have been voted the Premier League’s greatest side in the division’s first 20 years fending off competition from several of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United sides, as well as title-winning sides from Stamford Bridge and Ewood Park.
Winning 26 games and drawing 12 on their way to the title, the all-conquering Gunners, captained by Patrick Vieira, were the first English side to go an entire top flight season without defeat since Preston North End achieved the feat in the 1880s.
Reflecting on his side’s achievement of eight years ago, Wenger told the BBC:
“I am proud of that – and very happy. I told the players at the time they can achieve something special by becoming champions and being ‘invincible’ – and they did it.
“At the time they didn’t realise how much it could mean in the future, but I am very proud of them.”
Responding to suggestions that he could create another side capable of matching the quality of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and co. the Frenchman admitted that he was aiming to restore the glory days to N5.
“My target is to get back to that, to get back to that level.
“I feel personally we are not far from coming back to fight for the championship, let’s hope we can show that next season”
