The Gunners are unbeaten in the 2003/04 season Premier League season, the first team to do so in the modern era and an unprecedented feat.

Henry Henry says Arsenal Invincibles are ‘lunatics’

He told GQ: “We’re all leaders. We hate to lose. Obviously, sometimes we get beaten up, sometimes we lose. But we’re all leaders. We always challenge each other We are special Like Patrick Viera in midfield and Dennis Bergkamp and then Sol Campbell and Freddie [Ljungberg]. I won’t name the entire team explicitly. Because you can easily.

“We were lunatics who were there trying to be perfect. And we did it in one season. A lot of teams have come close to that. I hope that happens. out again, as I always say, I don’t have a problem with that. But we were the first to do it in the modern era of gaming.”

Henry insists the last run has been the hardest after they won the title and expressed gratitude to Wenger for keeping them motivated until the end of the season.

He added: “So yeah, to stay unbeaten in the Premier League… I have to say it’s very difficult, because every game is a battle.

“And back to the days, without anything going, back to those days it was a proper battle. I have to, again, thank you boss Arsène Wenger about that, because we’re already champions with four or five games left, I think.

“You still have to play those games, and he said give it a try, and you’ll see, that’s something that will stay in the history of the game.

“But it’s something I don’t realize at the moment, but being the boss, that’s why he’s the boss, can see the future.”
