The Gunners were, arguably, at the very peak of their powers at the time, with Arsene Wenger’s men avoiding defeat across the entire season – for which their squad was dubbed ‘The Invincibles’.
Chelsea and Arsenal are the only two unbeaten teams standing after six games of the current campaign, and with their strength and depth, some have suggested that the Blues could match the achievements of tomorrow’s foes.
However, Mourinho is adamant that his side will not manage to match or better their London rivals’ staggering record:
“It’s something that happened once in a lifetime,” he is quoted by Sky Sports. “I don’t see, in modern football with the competitiveness of this Premier League, one team being champion without a defeat.
“That will stay in the history as the second and the last time.
“(That is) my opinion, but we don’t know.”
Chelsea top the Premier League table with 16 points from six games and enter their home clash with Arsenal in confident mood after winning the same fixture in 2013/14 6-0.
