This is the greatest Arsenal away shirt known to man

Arsenal had one of the greatest teams the Premier League has ever seen between 2003 and 2005.

They also had some of their finest kits.

In 2002-03, Arsenal released this absolute beaut of an away kit, worthy of the likes of Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp and, of course, the mighty Thierry Henry.

Although Arsenal failed to win the title that season, being pipped to the post by – who else? – Manchester United, they played some scintillating stuff.

Arsenal won the Community Shield and the FA Cup that season, and Henry was at his blistering best.

The France World Cup-winner was only outscored in the Premier League by United’s Ruud van Nistelrooy.

After losing out to United in the title race, Arsenal battered Southampton 6-1 at Highbury, with Jermaine Pennant netting a hat-trick on his Premier League debut.

Arsenal, as we all know, would go on to avenge their bitter title defeat the following season, winning the trophy without losing a single game.

This Nike-made, O2-sponsored away kit was a class act in early Noughties football. It’s simple, it was worn by great players, and it was a bit of a departure from Arsenal’s standard yellow away strip.
