The Arsenal team of 2003-2004 were the type of team that usually only come along once in a lifetime, the last team to match their record were Preston North End way back in 1888-1889.
But this season Manchester United remain unbeaten, and atop of the league.
There are doubts as to whether they can emulate Arsenal, but it is certainly worth considering how the two teams compare.
I’ve tried to select the two team’s strongest squads and to match their formations. As an Arsenal supporter, I will do my upmost to be impartial and objective but apologies if it doesn’t seem that way.
