Arsenal created an unwanted record after their defeat to Nottingham Forest officially handed Manchester City the Premier League title on Saturday.
A first half goal by Taiwo Awoniyi saw Forest beat Arsenal 1-0 and guaranteed their safety in the Premier League.
According to statistician, OptaJoe, Arsenal led the Premier League table for 248 days in 2022-23, the most for a team who failed to win the title in English top-flight history.
City have now won the Premier League title for a fifth time in six seasons.
A sensational run of 11 consecutive wins in the final weeks of the season has seen City dismantle Arsenal’s charge for a first Premier League title since 2003/04.
At one stage in January, Pep Guardiola’s side trailed Arsenal by eight points but the reigning champions have remained unbeaten since a 1-0 loss at Tottenham on February 5, during which time Mikel Arteta’s side stuttered.
