Arsene Wenger has stated his belief that this current crop of players can match and indeed exceed the achievements of the great 'invincibles' side which went a whole league campaign unbeaten.
Wenger's Sunday celebrations of the 12th anniversary of his arrival as Arsenal manager may been muted by the shock 2-1 defeat to Hull City but the Frenchman retains his confidence in his current crop.
The Gunners class of 2003-04 did not suffer a defeat in the league with a side which boasted the talents of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Sol Campbell. Wenger believes his current squad, headed by the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri have the same ability and can win silverware at home and in Europe.
He told the BBC: "The invincibles were an extraordinary team and I believe we are very close - I believe we have the quality to achieve that.
"What comes out of the invincibles is that the consistency they showed in their attitude and that is what we have to cope with and I believe we can take that from them.
"They have been consistent with their attitude and over the long-term there is that consistency there.
"I believe this team can achieve great things and we should not set limitations on that because they will go as far as they want to go."
