Arsenal legend Lee Dixon insists Arsene Wenger’s 1998 title-winning team would beat the Gunners’ famous ‘Invincibles’ side.

Liverpool’s defeat to Watford last Sunday brought the Reds’ 44-match unbeaten run to an end and ensured Arsenal remain the only side to go through a single season undefeated.

Arsenal’s 03/04 side is often pitted against the likes of Manchester United 98/99, Chelsea 04/05 and Manchester City 17/18 in the argument for the greatest side in Premier League history.

Asked how previous Arsenal sides compared to the 2004 title winners, Dixon told Premier League Productions: ‘Look I didn’t play in that team- It was a brilliant team

‘I watched them throughout that season and I wanted them to go undefeated because they deserved to but I honestly think the best team I played in was the 1998 team.

‘If we played the ‘Invincibles’ ten times and there were no draws, we’d win 6-4.’

Liverpool’s defeat was certainly celebrated wildly in the red half of north London.

Arsenal ended their unbeaten season on 90 points but Liverpool are on course to smash that total.

Jurgen Klopp’s side already have 79 points and have ten matches to surpass the record tally set by Manchester City in 2018 with 100 points.
