Five Goals of the season
Arshavin vs Man. United
Just a few moments before that, the referee had denied Arshavin compensation for a careless Flecther tackle right in the penalty box but the Russian did not make any fuss of it, did he?
Andrey picked up the ball from yards out and managed to beat Ben Foster with a charming technique.[vodpod id=Video.3581146&w=350&h=280&fv=]
Vermaelen vs Wigan
He had scored earlier with a header so typical of a defender. But what Vermaelen followed it up with was just typical of Marco Van Basten.[vodpod id=Video.3581147&w=350&h=280&fv=]
Fabregas vs Spurs
For this goal to actually beat the sensation of Van Persie’s opener during another frenzy derby meant it was something special.
The way Fabregas strolled through Spurs’ defense, picked his head up and beat Gomes was just superb.[vodpod id=Video.3573581&w=350&h=280&fv=%26rel%3D0%26border%3D0%26]
Arshavin vs Liverpool
Arsenal were playing without a natural front man but the mixture of strength and skill Arshavin showed to beat Johnson and then Reina was as majestic as any striker.
A goal out of nothing at Anfield.[vodpod id=Video.3581149&w=350&h=280&fv=]
Nasri vs Porto
We all know Nasri has the ability to dribble and keep the ball at his feet for as long as he can.
But there is a big difference between doing it in all that room in midfield and emulating those tricks against three defenders in the 18-yard box…and then smashing the ball home from an impossible angle.[vodpod id=Video.3573545&w=350&h=280&fv=%26rel%3D0%26border%3D0%26]
Other goals that could have made it: Denilson vs Everton, Vermaelen vs Blackburn and Fabregas (1st) vs Villa.
