When did Arsenal last win the Premier League? Record since Invincibles season

Rebuilding their reputation after some disappointing Premier League seasons in the past few years, Arsenal are looking like geneuine title contenders in 2022/23. 

Despite plenty of promising signs last season, silverware remained elusive for the Gunners, with their last trophy coming back in 2019/20 in the form of the FA Cup.

This same story was a familiar one in the Premier League over the last decade, with the London giants slowly slipping away from their once regular position of title contenders. 

The Sporting News takes a look at the last time Arsenal won the Premier League title, alongside documenting how they have fared in every English top-flight season since their last triumph.

When did Arsenal last win the Premier League?

Arsenal last won the Premier League title in 2003/04, gaining 90 points over the course of 38 games without losing a single match.

Of course, this is regarded by many as arguably the best achievement in the history of English football, due to the notoriously difficult nature of getting consistent results in the Premier League.

In 2003/04, the Gunners recorded important victories in many tight encounters, including a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield, as well as a double over London rivals Chelsea, who were their nearest title competitors.

Most famously, they were embroiled in one of the most iconic matches in Premier League history in a 0-0 draw away to Manchester United in September 2003. Labelled as the ‘Battle of Old Trafford’, both Manchester United and Arsenal were involved in an extremely bad-tempered affair with multiple instances of fracas throughout. 

Gunners captain Patrick Vieira was dismissed with 13 minutes to go in the match, and then Man United’s Ruud Van Nistelrooy missed a last-minute penalty for the hosts. That prompted Martin Keown to celebrate wildly in front of the Dutchman, as Wenger’s side clung to a 0-0 draw before a melee ensued at the final whistle.

Six Arsenal players and two Manchester United men were charged with ”improper conduct’ by the FA in the aftermath of the game. This result was seen as symbolic of United’s dominance starting to falter, while providing the fuel for Arsenal to go unbeaten whereas the Red Devils could only muster a third-place finish. 

Wenger’s men never looked back. As they say, the rest is history.

What has Arsenal’s record been since their last Premier League title?

Despite consistently finishing in the top four and securing UEFA Champions League qualification from the 2004/05 campaign until 2015/16, the Gunners haven’t regularly challenged for the title.

The 2022/23 season is shaping up differently though with Arsenal top of the table coming out of the World Cup break and five points clear of next best Manchester City.

The Sporting News takes a look at their record since the famous Invincibles season and how close they have come to reaching the summit of the Premier League.

What are Arsenal’s odds to win the Premier League in 2022/23?

After a stunning start to the new season, Arsenal’s odds of winning the title have been given a healthy boost.

While top of the table going into 2023, the Gunners are still well behind reigning champions Manchester City in terms of favourites to lift the title. 

In bookmakers eyes, however, the Premier League looks poised to be won by one of the two this season.
