Arsenal’s historic unbeaten run, including their famous Invincibles season, started 18 years ago today.
Robert Pires scores the below worldie from outside the box to beat Southampton goalkeeper Paul Jones in what turned out to be a 6-1 whooping, in which the Frenchman completed a hat-trick.
Little did we know back then that this was the start of something truly special, that wouldn’t be replicated any time soon.

We of course went onto remain unbeaten for 49 matches in total, and as they say, the rest is history.
