Arsenal Football Club has built an impressive winning resume since the team was founded 130 years ago. Arsenal, or The Gunners as fans know them, have won 13 Division One/Premier League champions. Arsenal won its last title during the 2003-04 season — quite a drought for a team in contention each season. That same year, The Gunners went through the entire season without a single defeat — the first club to ever accomplish the feat during a 38-game schedule. Arsenal also won Premier League crowns in 2001-02 and 1997-98. They also have a joint-record 12 FA Cups, two League Cups and 14 Community Shields.
The Gunners have only been relegated to the second division once in 1913 and continue the longest streak in England’s top league. In 2016, Forbes Magazine estimated Arsenal was the second most valuable club in England, worth $2 billion.
Frenchman Thierry Henry played nine seasons with The Gunners and remains the franchise’s all-time leading scorer with 228 goals. He was Arsenal’s top scorer for seven consecutive seasons from 1999 to 2006. Henry and Robin van Persie hold the record for most goals in a Premier League season with 30 tallies.
Former defender David O’Leary, who played 18 seasons with Arsenal, remains the franchise’s all-time leader in appearances with 722 matches.

How To Win At Arsenal Betting
Arsenal couldn’t have asked for a better finish during the 2015-16 season and The Gunners most likely would have won its first title in more than 10 years had it not been for the Cinderella story of Leicester City.
Arsenal finished the season with an impressive record of 20 wins, 11 draws and seven losses. But they fell three-points shy of winning the Premier League crown.
Expect Arsenal to be in the thick of things again in 2016-17, as Bet365.com gives The Gunners a +600 line to win the Premier League outright — only Manchester City (+225) and Manchester United (+350) have better odds. The online sportsbook also has a -225 line that Arsenal will finish among the top four teams in the standings.
Bet365.com also pegs Arsenal at +900 to win the FA Cup and +1000 to capture the England EFL Cup.
The Gunners’ second-place finish last season also qualified them for the UEFA Champions League — a trophy they’ve yet to win. Arsenal made the 2006 Champions League final before losing to Barcelona. Although not favorites at +2500, expect The Gunners to make a deep run at the tournament.
The Gunners were one of the top-scoring teams last season, propelled by French striker Olivier Giroud’s club-leading 16 goals. Giroud is pegged at +1600 by Bet365.com to become the Premier League’s top goal scorer in 2016-17.
