The 2013/14 campaign will be Arsenal's 97th season in top-flight English football and their 110th overall in the league, an amazing statistic for quite an amazing football club, so we thought we would look into their past and publish some great statistics from their beginning all the way back in 1889.
Not only will it be their 110th league campaign, the upcoming season will also be Arsenal's 88th consecutive season in the top-flight of English football, now known as the Premier League.
