Arsenal has struggled to win the Premier League since they went through the entire 2003/2004 season unbeaten.
The Gunners have, however, had good seasons and near misses before Arsene Wenger left the club in 2018.
The Frenchman had to consistently build Premier League winning teams since the club moved to the Emirates, but they always fell short somehow and Gael Clichy has used a game to claim that crumbling was just typical of Arsenal.
In the 2010/2011 season, Arsenal was on course to end their Premier League trophy drought as they competed against Manchester United with players like Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere.
They were five points behind the Red Devils as they visited Newcastle with a chance to close the gap to just two points.
The Gunners raced to a four-goal lead, but the Magpies rallied back to draw the game 4-4, it was a shocker from an Arsenal point of view and Clichy has claimed that the game just showed how Arsenal typically fails the stand-up and be counted test when the occasion demands it.
The Frenchman told Premier League Productions: ‘Yeah but this was typical Arsenal.
‘We could go anywhere and play anyone off the park then all of a sudden we could crumble in just a few minutes.
‘We were young, we had plenty of talent but people were talking about what we were missing and maybe that was a bit of experience.’
He continued: ‘We had that team but even today’s team they have that quality to score four goals in 10 minutes,
‘Don’t ask me why Arsenal have always been able to do this but they can also even today concede goals for fun.
‘That was one of our weaknesses of the time, the long ball, the set pieces and getting physical.
‘I’m actually shocked nobody reacted [to the Nolan-Szczesny incident]. Okay Kevin did something wrong and someone should have seen it but we should have been there for the goalkeeper.
‘But that shows you what type of team we were, an amazing team but we lacked character if you want. Even with a lead of three goals, we could feel the fans pushing and the second goal I could feel that it was going to be difficult [to win].’
