Both times, the Gunners were defeated. Arsenal fell 1-0 against Don Revie's Leeds United in a dull contest with little chances, with Terry Cooper scoring the lone goal. Arsenal's second League Cup defeat was an infamous upset, as they were defeated 3-1 by Third Division side Swindon Town. After going down to a first-half goal from Kevin Moran, Graham Rix scored twice more to put the game out of reach.
The club has not won any silverware since then, and remains one of the few major English clubs to have never done so.
Arsene Wenger's men have now gone five seasons without a trophy.
The Frenchman has been trying to change this tradition by bringing in new players, but it hasn't worked out for him. He has also changed his tactics several times, but it hasn't helped him win anything either.
In fact, Arsenal have won only two matches under him, both in the FA Community Shield. The other 24 games have all ended in losses. Both of these victories came before he took over at the Club.
His record is now stands at 253 games without a title, which is the longest current streak in the Premier League.
Chelsea are currently on a 287-game drought between trophies, while Manchester United haven't lifted the FA Cup since 1998-99 season.
After being knocked out of both the FA Cup and the Champions League in the space of a few days, Arsenal rallied from a 2-1 half-time deficit against Liverpool at Highbury in April 2004 to win 4-2 and maintain their championship hopes. Later that month, Arsenal won the Premier League with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. This was their ninth league title in the last 10 seasons and they became the first club to achieve this feat.
They also reached the UEFA Champions League final but lost 1-4 to Barcelona. Barca went on to win its second consecutive European trophy.
However, the most memorable moment of the season came in the form of a 4-3 victory over Chelsea at Highbury in May 2004. It was only the third time in the history of the Premier League that two teams finished level on points but not on goal difference. The other occasions were 2000-01 when Leicester City and Manchester United ended up as joint champions; and 2001-02 when Chelsea and Arsenal finished tied on 42 points. In both those cases, a special play-off match had to be arranged to determine who would go down as champion. The game was settled by a penalty shoot-out and Arsenal won it 5-4.
The victory over Chelsea meant that Arsenal had achieved the "double" for the first time in their history. They had also won the FA Cup after beating Southampton 3-2 in the final.
Arsenal's 49-match undefeated run in the Premier League came to an end in October 2004 when they were defeated 2-0 by Manchester United. He finished his season at Arsenal by earning his first award as a member of the starting eleven that defeated Manchester United on penalties in the 2005 FA Cup Final. Fabregas scored one goal during this season.
He started the following season by helping the club regain their title after they lost it to Chelsea last year. The team was once again crowned champions with three games left to play after Chelsea failed to gain any points against lower league teams. In the process, Arsenal became the first team to successfully defend their title. Fabregas ended the season with 11 goals and 10 assists. He also won the PFA Players' Player of the Year Award.
After winning the title back in 2003-04, Arsenal didn't add to their success until 2004-05 when they completed the double by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Fabregas played every minute of both seasons and helped the club earn $21 million in prizes and bonuses. He concluded his career at Arsenal having made a total of 284 appearances, scoring 52 goals.
Fabregas initially signed for Arsenal in 2001 when he joined the club at age 17. He spent four years at the club without making a single appearance before being sent out on loan to various clubs including Barcelona, AC Milan, and Chelsea.
22 games Arsenal defeated Qarabag in their last Europa League group game at home. Alexandre Lacazette scored the game's only goal in a 1-0 win. Arsenal defeated 3-2 against Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium, breaking their unbeaten streak of 22 games. The victory also ensured that they would finish above Southampton if results went their way.
Before that defeat to Southampton, Arsenal had not lost a game since August 2017 when they were beaten by Manchester City. They finished the season as Premier League champions for the second time in three years.
They also reached the FA Cup final and the UEFA Champions League last 16 stage. For most of the season, it seemed like everyone wanted to see who was going to be named Premier League champion. However, just when it looked like Arsenal were going to retain their title, they were beaten by Southampton. It proved to be an important loss as they failed to beat them during the course of the season.
Since then, they have played one match: the Europa League final against Chelsea. Although they lost that game, it doesn't change the fact that they went undefeated throughout most of the season.
It was most likely the most humiliating defeat in Premier League history. Arsenal traveled to Old Trafford for another chapter in the Premier League's most heated managerial rivalry, hoping to demonstrate their determination for the season ahead after failing to win in their first two games. Instead, they were outclassed by their rivals in every aspect of the game as Manchester United beat them 7-1.
The loss left Arsenal with just one point from two matches and dropped them to the bottom of the table.
It was a disastrous start to the season for Arsene Wenger's side. They had already been eliminated from the Champions League before they even kicked a ball this year. Add to that the fact that it was against one of football's biggest teams and you have one very embarrassed Gunner fan.
Manchester United went on to dominate the rest of the match, scoring seven goals in the process while conceding only once. It was an abysmal display from Arsenal who could only watch as their opponents scored after scoreline became 5-1, 10-1, 11-1 and finally 7-1.
This match took place on August 26, 2013 and it was the last game of the season for both clubs as they tried to avoid relegation.
