Records don’t last forever, and like they say “records are meant to be broken”.
Arsene Wenger’s men have a record that has lasted well over a decade, and despite the emergence of so many top teams, the record hasn’t been surpassed or even reached.
Back in 2002, Arsene Wenger led his men to 14 consecutive Premier League victories; a record that has since stood up till this date. 14 years and 4 months after, and no team has broken or at least reached the record, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea have all stopped at 11 games since the record was set, while Manchester United previously held the record of 12 consecutive victories before it was broken by Arsenal.
Since October, Chelsea have been moving gradually, and the win against Bournemouth yesterday brought us two steps closer to Arsenal’s record, and from suffering a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal back in September, we are two games away from reaching their record.
This Chelsea side looks unstoppable and a win against Stoke City on December 31st will take us one step closer to that record. Arsenal beware!
However, Chelsea’s win against Bournemouth ensured we have the record of the longest winning run in a single season.
