Five teams that went unbeaten in a 38-game top-flight season: Across all of Europe’s top five leagues, the English Premier League is regarded as one of the most competitive.
As a result, when Arsenal went undefeated in the 2003-04 season, it was hailed as a wonderful achievement, earning Arsene Wenger’s team the title of ‘Invincibles’ and a special gold trophy for their incredible season.
Preston North End were the only other English club to achieve this feat in the 1888-89 season, but, who else has completed a 38-game top-flight season unbeaten this century?
- Arsenal (03/04)
- Juventus (11/12)
- Celtic (16/17)
- Rangers (20/21)
- FK Crvena Zvezda (20/21)
The crazy twist to this is, the captain of the first (Patrick Vieira) and managers of three others are in charge of a Premier League club (Antonio Conte, Brendan Rodgers, Steven Gerrard)!
