Many Arsenal fans voiced their approval after Jamie Carragher commented on what it was like to face the Invincibles.
During his appearance on Sky Sports for the coverage of Liverpool against West Ham United, the former defender revealed that the Gunners’ class of 2003/04 was the best side he faced during his time in the Premier League. The former England international also revealed that, when he came up against the side, he couldn’t compete with them physically (Sky Sports via Football Daily). Indeed, Arsene Wenger’s team from the early 2000s is one of the most famous in English top-flight history, having gone an entire league season without defeat, the first side to achieve the feat since Preston North End 115 years earlier (via BBC).
Carragher endured a horrible record against Arsene Wenger’s men during the first decade of the 21st century, winning just four of 20 league games (via Transfermarkt). He seemed to have warmed the hearts of the north London faithful, though, who took to Twitter to voice their agreement with the pundit after his comments on the Invincibles. Here is a selection of tweets from fans:

Vieira, Campbell, Lauren, Henry, Gilberto, Toure, Cole. This was a team of Olympic sprinters and/or all round physical demons, complimented by the guile and technical skill of Pires, Bergkamp and Ljungberg https://t.co/6qCEiuEIhB
