Arsenal’s greatest foreign squad of 6 members “Invincibles”

Sun Sport’s greatest ever squad of Arsenal players in history, including 6 members from the “Invincibles” team (invincible) 2003/04.

Of the 11 regular starting players in the 2003/04 unbeaten campaign, only Ashley Cole and Sol Campbell were English. Therefore, it is understandable that there are many members of this historic squad who are present in the best options.

In front of goal, Jens Lehmann was in great form during that glorious season and filled the big void of David Seaman.

Center-back belongs to David O’Leary, who was born in London but plays for the Irish team. In the late 70s and early 80s, O’Leary is said to be in the top 2-3 central defenders in the world.

Standing next to it is the choice between Kolo Toure and Laurent Koscielny. Later there were more good partners like Per Mertesacker and Thomas Vermaelen, but Koscielny eventually took the position.

The two Arsenal full-backs are all modern names. On the left, Gael Clichy overtook Nacho Monreal, and Bacary Sagna was a bit better than Lauren on the right.

Lauren was converted from midfielder to defender to replace the legendary Lee Dixon, a member of “Invincibles”.

In the central midfield there are many bright candidates, including Santi Cazorla, Gilberto Silva and Cesc Fabregas. But the chosen couple was Liam Brady and Patrick Vieira.

Brady is like a “witch” with a clever left foot, great vision and a scorer. Besides him, Vieira became the most perfect central midfielder the Premier League has ever seen.

On the flanks, vast positions were reserved for Robert Pires and Marc Overmars, although Freddie Ljungberg and Alexis Sanchez also received appreciation.

As for the attack, there is no dispute with partners Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. That’s because Robin van Persie shone for a short time, Emmanuel Adebayor only exploded in two seasons.
