On this day in 1998, Arsenal beat Leeds United 2-1 at Highbury during their second double-winning season.

The victory, which saw Marc Overmars score a brace, was the third in what would become an 18-game unbeaten run and the first game of the new year. This unbeaten run led to the Premier League title.

The Gunners (78) managed to beat Manchester United (77) to the title by just one point that season, so the victory over Leeds, who finished fifth, proved instrumental.

Overmars went on to score five more goals that season, resulting in 12 overall in the Premier League.

That season, Arsenal, managed by a fresh-faced Arsene Wenger, also went on to beat Newcastle 2-0 in order to win the FA Cup.
