Arsene Wenger admits it has taken time for the full extent of the Invincibles’ incredible unbeaten run to fully sink in.
Thursday marked the 10-year anniversary of the Gunners hitting 49 games without defeat as they beat Aston Villa 3-1 at Highbury.
Wenger remains fiercely proud of that achievement and says much of it down to the quality of the playing squad he had at his disposal.
"It had never been done in the Premier League until then and I can’t remember anybody winning the championship without losing a game"
“At the time when you do it, it just looks normal and natural,” he said. “When I look back at the photos today and I see the quality of each player, I think that’s when you realise that it was an exceptional team. Not only those who played regularly, but also those who were on the bench.

“I’m very proud of that because there’s not a lot of room to do better. Apart from that, the quality of the players I had was absolutely exceptional.”
