Bayern Munich star believes Arsenal of old can inspire his team this season

The Arsenal Invincibles are inspiring Thomas Muller to believe that Bayern Munich can go the entire Bundesliga season undefeated this term.

It takes a special team to go an entire season unbeaten, and there are only a handful of teams that have completed this incredible feat. One such team is of course the Arsenal Invincibles of 2003-04.

Lehmann, Campbell, Toure, Lauren, Cole, Vieira, Gilberto, Pires, Ljungberg, Bergkamp and Henry formed the core XI that pulled off this ridiculous feat - and now another team in Europe are eyeing up the achievement.

At least according to one of their star players.

German international Thomas Muller is likely good friends with current Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski - but he wants to do what they no longer can this season and emulate the great Arsenal team of ten years ago.

Bayern Munich are currently top of the Bundesliga, with 10 wins and two draws from their 12 games this season, as they try to emulate the excellent 2012-13 season under Jupp Heynckes.

Last term they lost just one league game to Bayer Leverkusen, and Muller now believes that the Bavarians can do what Arsenal did a decade ago - and go the distance without losing a single game in the Bundesliga:

"Arsenal have done it in England. Last season we were getting close, we only lost against Leverkusen. It's not easy, but it would definitely be an incentive to not lose for a whole season."

They certainly have the talent at their disposal, with this Bayern side arguably stronger than the Arsenal Invincibles.

They perhaps face their greatest challenge of the season upon returning from the international break - when they travel to Borussia Dortmund for a clash of the two most dominant forces in Germany over recent years.

But Muller believes that if Arsenal once did it, Bayern certainly can.
