Media praise for "Invincibles"
Arsenal's unbeaten run on the way to winning the 2003-04 Premiership crown drew universal praise in Sunday's newspapers.

Here's a look at some of the headlines and stories surrounding the achievement of the record-breaking Gunners.

The News of the World hails manager Arsene Wenger's side as "Immortals" and leads its back page with a story with Ashley Cole hoping David Beckham may be a summer arrival to further strengthen the squad.

There is also an eight-page tribute to the "Gunbeatable" side, acclaiming the team and manager as legends.

The Star on Sunday leads with the headline "38 Gun Salute" - similarly to the Sunday Express - and jubilant manager Wenger paying tribute to his players.

The History Men - The People
The Men for All Season - The Independent
Arsenal the New Invincibles - The Sunday Times

"Invincibles" is The Daily Mail's choice of headline as they have Wenger warning Arsenal will get even better.

There is also an in-depth look at the Preston side who achieved a similar feat in 1888/89 when they went a 22-game season unbeaten.

The Sunday People lauds the team as "The History Men" and has a four-page picture souvenir titled "It's a Gunderful life".

There is a photo from each of their matches this season, titled "38 Steps to Heaven".

The broadsheets acclaim Arsenal as "The Men for All Season" and says the 2-1 win over Leicester which sealed the record 38 games unbeaten Premiership run has seen them go from the "Invincibles" to the "Immortals".

The Observer has "Unbeaten Arsenal in football heaven" while Arsenal are "The New Invincibles" according to The Sunday Times as they head their match report as the Dream Team make history.
