Inside the opposition
Historically one of the most successful clubs in the Premier League, Arsenal have established themselves as the longest-running side in the top flight - having been there since 1919. They have won the First Division/Premier League title on 13 occasions and also went the entire 2003/04 season unbeaten.
Their first period of success came in 1930 under Herbert Chapman, when they won five titles and two FA Cups, then claimed the league and cup double in 1970/71. Under manager Arsene Wenger, who arrived in 1997, the club picked up two more doubles: 1997/98 and 2001/02.
Despite a rich history of success, there has been something of a barren spell in recent years as they have not won a trophy for eight years – the last being the 2005 FA Cup. However, with a commitment to attacking football and one of the finest youth programmes in the world, the Gunners remain a fearsome prospect.
