When did Arsenal last win the Premier League title?

The drought might be coming to an end...

Comments

We’re about to hit the half-way point in the Premier League campaign and, incredibly, Arsenal are on track to win the title.

It may have seemed like a fanciful prospect at the start of the season but Mikel Arteta has got his lean, mean fighting machine sitting top of the lot and playing some lovely stuff.

The 2-0 victory over bitter rivals Tottenham in the North London derby saw Arsenal move eight points clear of Manchester City, which prompted Paddy’s trusty traders to make the Gunners the favourites in our Outright Winner 2022/23 betting market for the first time.

There was a period when Arsenal were the dominant force in English football, however, a whole generation has grown up without seeing them crowned Premier League champions.

As it’s really starting to look like they might actually do it, we thought we’d take a little stroll down Nostalgia Avenue to the last time Gooners celebrated a Premier League title…

The year is 2004. May to be a bit more precise. The final episode of Friends has just aired. Lance Armstrong is the most celebrated athlete on the planet. The iPhone is a mere thought in Steve Jobs’ big brain.

Arsenal have also just completed a whole season unbeaten on their way to the 2003/04 Premier League title. Yes, Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ remain the last Arsenal side to lift the top prize on English football.

The Premier League even awarded the Gunners a swanky gold trophy to commemorate the achievement.

Thierry Henry banged in the goals, Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva ran the midfield while Sol Campbell and Kolo Toure were dominant at the back.

Halcyon times for Gooners.

Arsenal have won the FA Cup on five occasions since their last Premier League triumph, but the intervening years have been relatively light on success.

Arteta has revitalised the club since succeeding Unai Emery as manager in 2019, but there have been some bumps along the way with back-to-back eighth-place finishes in the Premier League being compounded by last season’s near miss on Champions League qualification.
