It's time to reveal the Gunners' Greatest 50 Goals - as voted for by Arsenal's fans.

We continue our countdown with a special strike from French midfielder Mathieu Flamini, which lit up our 3-0 Premier League victory over Newcastle in 2008.

Arsenal led 1-0 at the time thanks to Emmanuel Adebayor's first-half header and they were good value for their lead. With 18 minutes left, Flamini secured all three points.

The move for his goal started with a long kick from Manuel Almunia. Nicklas Bendtner won a flick-on but Emmanuel Adebayor's cross from the right was cleared.

Abou Diaby retrieved possession tight on the left-hand touchline and found Cesc Fabregas, who picked out Flamini 30 yards from goal, left of centre and, crucially, with space ahead of him.

The Frenchman's first touch took him into that space and, as a defender closed him down, Flamini fired in a sweetly-struck drive which faded away from goalkeeper Shay Given and found the top corner. He was hardly a regular on the scoresheet but this one was definitely worth the wait.
