When Did Arsenal Last Win A Trophy? How Long Gunners Have Gone Without Silverware

Arsenal’s trophy cabinet is not just one of the most extensive in England – thanks to their rich history, they can boast about being one of the most successful clubs in the world.

All in all, Arsenal have won England’s top league, whether it be the First Division or the Premier League, 13 times. Only two teams have won it more: Liverpool and Manchester United.

Despite their historic success, it has now been multiple years since Arsenal last laid their hands on a piece of major silverware – in any form.

While the Gunners came mightily close to securing the Premier League title last season, a lull in form towards the end of the campaign ultimately allowed Manchester City to swoop in and win the top prize.

When did Arsenal last win a trophy?

Arsenal last collected major silverware in 2020, when they defeated Chelsea in the FA Cup final to lift the trophy and get one over on their London rivals.

Chelsea opened the scoring with a goal from Christian Pulisic, but a brace from Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was enough to win the famous cup for the Gunners.

In that Covid-hit season, they also went on to win the Community Shield. They were drawn against Liverpool, who had won the Premier League in the 2019/20 season. Ultimately, Arsenal emerged victorious. The game was level at full time, thanks to goals from Aubameyang and Takumi Minamino, but the Gunners won the resulting penalty shoot out.

How many days is it since Arsenal last won a trophy?

The FA Cup final against Chelsea took place on August 1, 2020.

When did Arsenal last win the title?

Arsenal’s last Premier League title came in 2003/04. It was a memorable season for many reasons, but perhaps its defining characteristic was the fact that the Gunners went the whole season unbeaten.

The team that won the league that year has since become known as the ‘Invincibles’ – only one other team in England, Preston North End, has been able to achieve such a monumental feat.

What is the longest Arsenal have gone without a trophy in their history?

Arsenal have had several trophy droughts over the course of the history – however, none of them have been quite as extensive as the lack of silverware between the years of 1953 and 1970.

In 1953, Arsenal won the First Division title, beating out Preston to the top spot on goal difference. It was a record-breaking achievement, as it saw the North London club collect their seventh First Division title.

Seventeen years would pass before the Gunners had their hands on major silverware once more. However, their hunger was sated in fine style – in 1970, not only did they win the First Division title – they also picked up an FA Cup trophy in the same year, completing a double.

Hopefully, the Gunners will never experience a drought like this ever again – given the strength of their current squad, it is highly unlikely to occur any time soon.
