For many years Arsenal were mocked for their lack of British talent. Haters even joked that the Gunners should compete in the French league.

The Gunners beat Palace 5-1, thanks to goals from a Dutchmen, two Frenchman and a Spaniard.
Arsenal were brilliant to watch, but fans were worried about their lack of domestic talent.
