Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has described how the Gunners had gone periliouly close to losing out on their unbeaten run in the league in the 2003/04 season.

The north London club had created history by not losing a single game through the length of the season and eventually lifting the Premier League title.

The feat gave the team the "The Invincibles" tag and added another feather to Thierry Henry's illustrious career in the Premier League. The Frenchman has 175 league goals, the most by any player in the league and has been voted by Arsenal fans as the best player in their history.

Henry describes how the Arsenal team had slacked off after winning the title and had a run of games at the end with nothing to play for. He also revealed how Wenger and Captain Patrick Vieira had asked the team to buckle up and finally achieve something magical. The Gunners had gone 1-0 down to Leicester City in their final game of the season but came back to win the last game at 2-1.

"The main thing is to be champions. You still have six or five games to go and I remember the boss coming in every morning saying 'guys you are maybe going to be able to something amazing. Are you realising?' We were like 'we're champions man, come on!'. It's like a boxer, a boxer doesn't go in the ring just to have fun. You go out there to kill and that was our mentality," Henry told

"Suddenly I remember Patrick [Vieira] looking at me and he was like 'There is no fight, I need have the fight, I need to know that we need to get some points."

"We were not realising what was happening. They [Leicester] go 1-0 up and suddenly you wake up and hope it won't be too late, because you know in this type of game you can hit the crossbar or the post and you can never come back.

"Somehow we came back into it [to win 2-1], and what a finish, I think the skipper scoring the winning goal was the cherry on the cake," he concluded.
