New Arsenal kit includes tribute to Invincibles 20 years on from unbeaten season

Arsenal's new home shirt – which was unveiled on Friday – features a tribute to their Invincible winning side.

It's been 20 years since Arsenal last conquered the Premier League – becoming the only side to do it undefeated. The Gunners received a golden Premier League trophy, and that has been paid tribute to in their new strip.

In a statement, Arsenal said: "Our new kit draws on the spirit of The Invincibles team of 2003/04, marking the beginning of the 20th anniversary of our unbeaten Premier League season.

"Our crest and Adidas logo and three stripes down each sleeve feature in gold, and our record of 26 wins and 12 draws over 38 games in that historic season is stitched into the side of the authentic version of the kit."

"Not one to usually give Arsenal any sort of praise, but that kit is absolutely phenomenal," one fan said. While another added: "I knew that gold had something to do with the Invincibles' legacy!"

However, the gold isn't the only tribute, and Arsenal's record from that famous season is printed down the side of the shirt.

Arsenal were in touching distance of ending their Premier League drought this season, with Mikel Arteta's side leading the way for the majority of the campaign.

However, the Gunners crumbled under the pressure, and a resurgent Manchester City were able to catch and pass Arsenal. The Gunners will end the season trophyless, having also been dumped out of both domestic cup competitions.
