FA Carling Premiership 1997-98

https://i2.wp.com/america.pink/images/8/5/6/1/2/en/1-1997-arsenal-season.jpgArsène Wenger’s second season in charge of Arsenal ended with the club’s second League and Cup ‘double’. Using the famously stern defence assembled by George Graham, Wenger reconstructed Arsenal’s midfield by adding Emmanuel Petit and Marc Overmars – they were integral as the Gunners overhauled Manchester United to win the Premiership.
