Arsenal, Chelsea


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks it is far too early to be talking about Chelsea repeating the Gunners incredible 2003/04 season in which they became known as the “Invincibles”.

This sensational season was the first time ever that a Premier League side went a whole season unbeatable seeing off both Manchester United and Chelsea to win the title.

Chelsea has gotten off to a flying start though not having lost their first nine matches and with the arrival over the summer of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa they look primed to be this season’s champion.

Many television pundits including former Arsenal star Patrick Vieira think that the Blues have the quality to remain unbeaten, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not of the same opinion feeling that it is still far too early to make any predictions.

He said: “Chelsea in a strong position and I believe it’s not unrealistic that we can catch them.

“We need realistic results to get to them but we are more focused on the consistency of our games and results.

” [Invincibles?] There’s only been nine games played, there’s a long way to go, it’s too early.
