It has been 12 years since Arsenal managed to pull off an undefeated season and win the Premier League title, becoming the first team to be able to do so in the PL era, and the second team to do so overall in the top tier of English football.
The first team to achieve this feat was Preston North End who went through the entire season undefeated in 1889-90. The 2003-04 season was also the last time Arsene Wenger won a Premier League title, and he has been subject to constant criticism due to this as also their shaky form this season in particular.
A majority of the players from the Invincibles side are still involved with football, few others became TV pundits, politicians and businessmen.
After a five-year stint with the Gunners, the goalkeeper left for VFB Stuttgart in 2008 and retired after two seasons there. In 2011, he came back from retirement to aid Wenger’s injury-marred squad and earn his coaching badges in the process, playing only one game — a 3-1 away win against Blackpool.
Currently, he works as a TV pundit in Germany.
The left-back joined Arsenal as a youth player and quickly moved up the ranks, making his first-team debut at 18.

He moved to Chelsea shortly thereafter, where he won another Premier League title, four FA Cups and a Champions League title.
After a failed two-year stint at Roma, Cole is now plying his trade in Major League Soccer, playing for LA Galaxy.
