Arsenal's first and only Japanese player. Junichi Inamoto moved to Highbury in the summer of 2001 and was at the Club when Wenger led Arsenal to the Double less than a year later. However, Inamoto played just four times that season and did not appear at all in the Premiership. He impressed at the World Cup in his homeland but was soon on his way to Fulham.


Steve Morrow will be remembered for his decisive goal in the 1993 Coca Cola Cup but also for the bizarre injury he suffered soon after the final whistle. The matchwinner was hoisted aloft by Tony Adams, fell over the captain's shoulder and broke his arm on the Wembley turf. Morrow missed the trophy presentation and received his medal at Wembley when the team played in the FA Cup Final later that year.


In 1890, Arsenal moved across Plumstead High Street to a new ground which already had a stand, terraces and dressing rooms - the Invicta. At their previous ground Arsenal had to rope off the pitch and bring in wagons for crowds of 500 to 1,000. Those days seemed behind the Club, but a huge increase on the rent forced Arsenal to move again in 1893.


Preston's team of 1888-89 were tagged 'The Invincibles' after completing an unbeaten top-flight season. Their astonishing feat remained unique until last season, when Arsène Wenger's Gunners went through the entire Premiership campaign without tasting defeat. Even more impressively, Arsenal had to play 38 games compared to Preston's 22 in the 19th century.
