Man City star admits one Arsenal record they were aiming to match this season

There are two iconic achievements in the Premier League that have always been sought after. 

One is Manchester United’s 1998-99 feat of winning the treble, which includes the FA Cup, the Premier League, and the Champions League. The other is Arsenal’s 2003-04 Invincibles season, where they remained undefeated in the league.

However, Manchester City managed to win the treble last season, leaving Arsenal’s unbeaten record from the 2003-04 season as the only outstanding accomplishment by a Premier League team in a single campaign that remains unbroken.

After Manchester City’s treble win last season, it seems that achieving the treble may not be as remarkable anymore. Instead, going undefeated in the league has gained significance.

As of now, only two teams, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, have yet to lose a league match and could potentially achieve an unbeaten season. 

Manchester City had shown interest in achieving this feat for the current season and bolstered their squad by signing players like Josko Gvardiol, Jeremy Doku, Mateo Kovacic, and Matheus Nunes. 

However, they cannot reach that milestone anymore due to their losses to your team and Wolves.

Their star forward, Jack Grealish, recently disclosed that their ambition to remain undefeated was hindered, stating during his time on international duty, according to Goal:

“I don’t mean this to sound weird but it is difficult in a way because you have such a high of winning the treble and then you do think ‘what would ever top that?” he said.

“Obviously doing something at international level definitely would. But then even at club level you think ‘what would top it?’ Maybe to win all four including the Carabao Cup but we went out of that last week. You probably think about doing an ‘Invincible’ season but we got beat.”

Regrettably for them, achieving that goal won’t be possible. Our victory against them last weekend and Wolves’ triumph over them the week before ensured that. 

Nevertheless, our Arsenal team, which has maintained an unbeaten record for eight league seasons, now has the chance to become invincible. Can we pull it off? I suppose that’s a question we’ll have to patiently await an answer for.
