The last time Arsenal won the title, they did it without losing a single game in the whole season. The 2003-2004 invincibles will undoubtedly go down as the best team in the Premier League Era. However, since then it’s all gone a little quiet at the Emirates. The North London club only broke their trophy drought in May 2014, when they lifted the FA Cup, a trophy they last won in 2005. Arsenal fans have started getting frustrated and Wenger knows that one more season without the league title, could spell the end of his tenure as an Arsenal manager. Here we look at the 10 things that have happened, since the last time Arsenal lifted the Premier League trophy.
