The only word that can describe this one is a miracle.

Ahead of the final nine games of that season, Arsenal were trailing Manchester United by 11 points in the standings. Pretty much everyone in England had written them off by that stage.

But a 1-0 win at Old Trafford sparked a brilliant comeback, with the Gunners clawing their deficit to win a first Premier League title by a single point following a 10-match winning run.

Ironically, though, Arsene Wenger’s men lost their last two games of that campaign to Liverpool and Aston Villa.
