Arsenal’s zenith came in 2003-04, when Arsene Wenger’s side won the title without losing a single game. The following season saw the emergence of a relatively new force in Premier League football, with a Roman Abramovich-backed Chelsea side swaggering to back-to-back titles under Jose Mourinho.

They listed some subs too:
Edwin van der Saar, William Gallas, Claude Makelele, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp, Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy
It’s hard to disagree with that selection. Perhaps United fans will feel put out that Van der Saar didn’t make the final XI, and it’s something of a mystery that neither John Terry or Nemanja Vidic are in the squad.
Thoughts, people? Who’s missing and who shouldn’t be there? Let us know in the comments.
