Arsenal 2001-2004

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal were the first team to consistently challenge Manchester United for the title, winning it in 1997-98 and again in 2001-02 (a Double-winning season) and 2003-04.

They managed eight top-two finishes in a row from 1999 until 2005.

French stars Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires, as well as Dutchman Dennis Bergkamp, were aided by England defenders Ashley Cole and Sol Campbell in a side that made history.
