The club's success in the late 1990s and first decade of the 21st century owed a great deal to the 1996 appointment of Arsène Wenger as manager. Wenger brought new tactics, a new training regime and several foreign players who complemented the existing English talent.
Arsenal won a second League and Cup double in 1997–98 and a third in 2001–02. In addition, the club reached the final of the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup (losing on penalties to Galatasaray), was victorious in the 2003 and 2005 FA Cups, and won the Premier League in 2003–04 without losing a single match, an achievement which earned the side the nickname "The Invincibles". The feat came within a run of 49 league matches unbeaten from 7 May 2003 to 24 October 2004, a national record.
The 2009–10 season was Arsenal Football Club's 18th season in the Premier League. Arsenal's 2009–10 Premier League season began with a 6–1 victory away to Everton. Arsenal suffered back-to-back Premier League losses on four occasions this season, but finished the season third in the Premier League.
Arsenal also advanced to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, but were knocked out by reigning champions Barcelona in a two-legged tie, having first eliminating Scottish club Celtic 5–1 on aggregate in the play-off round, finishing top their group, which included Greek club Olympiacos, Belgian club Standard Liège, and Dutch club AZ, with 13 points during the group stage, and overcoming a first-leg deficit to beat F.C. Porto 6–2 on aggregate in the first knockout round.
