Arsenal's Comeback vs. FC Barcelona at the Emirates

1 of 10

    This was one of the best matches ever played by Arsenal in their recent history, as they proved their quality against the best club in the world. Though the Gunners were dominated by Barcelona in the first half and also conceded a goal, they showed their quality after the break. They continued to push for the equalizer, which eventually arrived when Robin van Persie hit a superb shot from a very difficult angle, which beat Victor Valdes at his near post.

    Their amazing comeback was complete when Arsenal launched a swift counter-attack after Laurent Koscielny intercepted a pass from Lionel Messi. Within four passes, Samir Nasri was put through on goal. However, he was slightly wide and did the right thing by looking for support which was provided by the onrushing Andrei Arshavin.

    Arshavin might be frustrating at times, but it is moments like these that show his quality as a footballer as he coolly slotted it past Valdes. Despite the Gunners losing the tie in the second leg, this game will be remembered for a long time for the quality shown by Arsenal, as they refused to be outplayed by Barcelona's passing style.

Michael Thomas' Incredible Late Goal to Win the Championship

2 of 10

    It is not often that Championships are decided in the last minute of the season, but that is what happened in that amazing encounter at Anfield. Arsenal needed to beat Liverpool by two goals, and anything less than that would result in Liverpool winning the Championship. Though the Gunners did take the lead, they were unable to find the second goal until the last minute of the game. A Liverpool attack was intercepted, and Arsenal launched a quick attack frantically in search of the second goal.

    Michael Thomas was put through on goal from a long ball, which he did well to control, and he slotted it past the keeper to complete a historic victory for the Gunners. Thomas is still fondly remembered among the Arsenal fans for scoring that goal which sealed them the Championship, and it is regarded as one of the best games in the history for the Gunners.

Dennis Bergkamp's Magic Goal vs. Newcastle United

3 of 10

    It s doubtful if Arsenal have ever had a more gifted player than Dennis Bergkamp ,and he was one of the greatest players ever to have played for the Gunners. The Dutchman did not have the pace of Thierry Henry, but was unique with regard to his creativity, vision and technique on the ball and was very important in Arsenal's title wins. The Dutch master scored plenty of brilliant goals during his time at Arsenal and also was influential in helping out Robin van Persie, who was a raw youngster at that time.

    Bergkamp scored and assisted many brilliant goals, but this goal against Newcastle stands out as his best goal and one of the best ever goals scored in the Premiership. He receives a pass from Robert Pires, and he just flicks it beyond the defender as he is turning. He then uses his strength to get past the defender and gives the keeper absolutely no chance with that clinical finish.

Robin Van Persie's Wonder Goal vs. Charlton Athletic

4 of 10

    Robin van Persie is one of the very special strikers to have played for the Gunners, and his talent was always undeniable, though his temperament has been questioned in the past. However, he has done brilliantly to get over the initial hurdles to proudly captain the Gunners and is the key for the club at present. Though he has scored plenty of goals in the past year, this goal against Charlton Athletic a couple of years back is arguably still his best goal in his time at Arsenal.

    Eboue makes a good forward run and delivers a hopeful cross, which finds Robin van Persie on the edge of the box. It is at an awkward height, and most footballers could even struggle to control the ball with their chest with a defender close to him.

    However, van Persie strikes it on his first touch with his lethal left foot at that height which shows his athleticism and also his amazing technique. He immediately recognizes that he has scored a sensational goal and is appreciated by the rest of the team as well.

Andrei Arshavin's Four Goals Against Liverpool in Premiership Thriller

5 of 10

    Andrei Arshavin has to be considered as one of the most frustrating Arsenal players in recent times because he is obviously very talented, but is too inconsistent for a player of his quality. Arsene Wenger splashed the money to sign the dynamic Russian international, and this performance from him demonstrates why the Frenchman was so keen on bringing him to the Emirates. Arshavin has the quality to be decisive in important games, and he showed his class in this exciting encounter at Anfield.

    He scored all four goals in this game, which ended in a 4-4 draw, and this game will be remembered for Arshavin's heroics. He uses both his left and right foot in scoring goals and scores four excellent goals in this exciting game for the Gunners.

Arsenal's Controversial Draw at Old Trafford in the 2003-04 'Invincibles' Season

6 of 10

    The 2003-04 season was arguably Arsenal's greatest ever season in the Premiership, as Arsene Wenger managed to win the league title without losing a single game in the season. Their main challengers were Manchester United as always, and the games were fiercely contested by both sides. Arsenal and Manchester United both were led by fiery characters in Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane, and this game had plenty of controversial moments.

    Vieira was sent off for reacting to a foul from Ruud van Nistelrooy, much to the anger of the Arsenal players, who protested the decision to send off the penalty. As the game was close to finishing, Manchester United were awarded a penalty much to the ire of the Arsenal players and fans. The controversial Nistelrooy stepped up to take the penalty, and though he sent the keeper the wrong way, he only hit the crossbar and Arsenal players celebrated the result like a victory. It also provided them the momentum which helped them remain unbeaten throughout the season.

Thierry Henry's Fairytale Return Against Leeds United

7 of 10

    Thierry Henry is one of the greatest ever players to play for the Arsenal, and it was sad to see him depart the club to sign for FC Barcelona. Though he did leave the club, he has always remained an Arsenal fan, which is why he did train with the Gunners during his break from the MLS. Arsene Wenger has to manage with the temporary departures of Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh for the African Cup of Nations and made an intelligent decision to sign the legendary Frenchman on a loan basis.

    Henry made his second debut for Arsenal against Leeds as a substitute. The game was still deadlocked, and it needed an injection of quality, which is exactly what Henry provided. Song provided an excellent through ball to find Henry, who had made a good run from the left. The Frenchman coolly slotted the ball past the goalkeeper and celebrated wildly in front of the Arsenal fans, who were delighted to see their hero back in a Arsenal jersey.
