Arsenal were 5,000-1 to be Invincible

What were the odds that Arsenal would not lose for the entire 2003-04 Premier League season and become the Invincibles? Actually, 5,000-1 according to the VBET traders.

We crunched the numbers for Arsenal’s unbeaten Premier League campaign to see what the odds were at every key moment during the Gunners’ unforgettable campaign. So how did Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles somehow defy the odds?

Even after an unbeaten August, it still looked mission impossible – especially once Man Utd were awarded a late penalty at Old Trafford in September. But Ruud van Nistelrooy hit the crossbar, and the Gunners went from 3,500-1 to˙750-1 on becoming the first ever unbeaten Premier League team.

Arsenal were as short as 20-1 to become the Invincibles following an important 2-1 win at Chelsea in February. By the time Thierry Henry scored a hat-trick in a 4-2 victory over Liverpool on Good Friday, Arsenal were as short as 6-1 to finish their 38 games without a defeat.

And once the Gunners secured a 2-2 draw at Spurs at the end of April, Arsenal were Premier League champions and priced at just 6-4 to be Invincible.

Arsene Wenger’s men could have easily put their feet up and enjoyed the moment with four games to go, but this was no ordinary side. This was the Arsenal Invincibles of 2003-04.
