10. Aaron Ramsey vs Swansea City, Premier League, Liberty Stadium, 28th September 2013, W 2-1
Szczesny played a ball out quickly, which fell to a Swansea player, but Jack Wilshere was quickest to react. He combines with Giroud, who cuts back to Ramsey, who himself cuts back, creates space and shoots ferociously into the net.
9. 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.
8. Jack Wilshere vs Swansea City, FA Cup 3rd Round Replay, Emirates Stadium, 16th January 2013, W 1-0

7. Mesut Ozil vs Napoli, Champions League Group Stages, Emirates Stadium, 1st October 2013, W 2-0
Arsenal destroyed Napoli in an opening 15 minute salvo, which started with a cracking 8th minute goal from Mesut Ozil. Olivier Giroud held off a Napoli defender, releasing Ramsey on the right wing. The Welshman then played a perfectly directed pass into the path of Ozil, who crashed the ball home subtly. What a way to open your goal scoring account!
6. Jack Wilshere vs West Bromwich Albion, Premier League, The Hawthorns, 6th October 2013, D 1-1

Having been set up by Wilshere, Ramsey leaves two Norwich defenders bewildered, before unleashing a powerful shot past the Norwich goalie.
4. 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.

Jai Arsenal 🙂
