Arsenal achieve another double winning season under Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to the double again in 2001-2002. It was the club’s second double under Wenger in four years.
The Gunners won the Premier League by seven points and went the entire season undefeated away from home. Impressively, they also scored in every one of their league games.
The double was completed when Arsenal defeated Chelsea at the Millennium Stadium on May 4th. Goals from Ray Parlour and Freddie Ljungberg brought the FA Cup back to North London.
Wenger pulled off a great coup prior to the start of the campaign. He solidified Arsenal’s defense by bringing defender Sol Campbell to Highbury from cross town rivals Tottenham.
The boss and his players were the recipients of most major awards that season. Wenger was named the Premier League Manager of the year for the second time. Midfielder Freddie Ljungberg won the league’s Player of the Year and winger Robert Pires picked up the Football Writer’s Association Footballer of the Year.
The Golden Boot once again went to Thierry Henry who lead the league with 24 goals and scored 32 times in all competitions.
