Top 10 Arsenal Goals of 2012-2013

06 Jun

10. Santi Cazorla vs West Ham United, Premier League, Emirates Stadium, 23rd January 2013, W 5-1

A perfect Arsenal team goal. Giroud played his customary lob to Podolski, but instead of taking a shot with his favored left foot, he set up Cazorla, who, under pressure from goalkeeper and defender, backheeled the ball into the back of the net.

9. Per Mertesacker vs Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League, Emirates Stadium, 17th November 2012, W 5-2

With Arsenal trailing 1-0 to Tottenham in a fiery North London derby, Per Mertesacker rose highest to viciously thump home an equalizing header. His celebrations were a joy to watch as well.

8. Lukas Podolski vs Southampton, Premier League, Emirates Stadium, 15th September 2012, W 6-1

Lukas Podolski was only just introducing himself to the Premier League and this beauty did him no harms. A finely struck left footed free kick flew over the wall and into the net, past Artur Boruc.

7. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain vs Coventry City, League Cup Fourth Round, Emirates Stadium, 26th September 2012, W 6-1

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the best out of 7 goals as a young Arsenal side thrashed Coventry 6-1. Collecting a pass from Andrei Arshavin he positioned himself well to unleash a goal from 25 yards.

6. Jack Wilshere vs Swansea City, FA Cup 3rd Round Replay, Emirates Stadium, 16th January 2013, W 1-0

With extra time looming large, Jack Wilshere came up with the goods, as Arsenal edged Swansea in this FA Cup replay. He played a 1-2 with the delightful Giroud, who returned the ball with the outside of his foot, to Wilshere, whose sweetly struck flew past Michel Vorm.

5. Kieran Gibbs vs Swansea City, FA Cup 3rd Round, Liberty Stadium, 6th January 2013, D 2-2

Kieran Gibbs was another recipient of the Giroud lob. With Podolski having just equalized, the Frenchman played in a delightful over the defence lob, and the left-back demonstrated his expertise as a winger, with a ferocious volley, a la Podolski.

4. Santi Cazorla vs West Ham United, Premier League, Upton Park, 6th October 2013, W 3-1

Theo Walcott won the ball in a tangle, and set up Cazorla, who unleashed a swerving left footed strike that left Jussi Jaskelnainen with no chance.

3. Laurent Koscielny vs Manchester City, Premier League, Etihad Stadium, 23rd September 2013, D 1-1

With Arsenal having dominated Manchester City for majority of this Premier League point, it was only fitting that they would cap the display with a stunning goal. 81 minutes on the clock, and after a poor clearance from City defenders, the ball fell to Laurent Koscielny, who created space for himself and smashed it into the top corner, beating Joe Hart. Not bad for a central defender.

2. Lukas Podolski vs West Ham United, Premier League, Emirates Stadium, 23rd January 2013, W 5-1

Moments after Jack Collison had given Arsenal the lead, Lukas Podolski scored an amazing left-footed strike, that landed in the back of the net.

1. Lukas Podolski vs Montpellier, Champions League Group Stage, 21st November 2013, W 2-0

This goal bought back memories of a George Graham goal against Liverpool in the 70’s. A darting run from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and a quick 1-2 between Podolski and Giroud resulted in the Frenchman setting up Podolski for a left-footed volley, which was taken with much aplomb and ferocity.
