Arsenal's Carling Cup victory over Wigan was graced by great goals, fine football - and arguably the finest save ever seen at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal 3-0 Wigan Athletic, Carling Cup 4th Round. November 11, 2008.
Fabianski, captaining Arsène Wenger's young side, produced a stunning double-stop in the closing minutes to secure a second successive clean sheet in the competition. The Polish goalkeeper pushed aside a shot from Daniel de Ridder and then showed incredible reflexes and agility to spring up and tip Amr Zaki's close-range effort onto the underside of the crossbar.

Arsenal 0-0 Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League, First Knockout Round. March 8, 2006.
Arsenal secured a 1-0 aggregate win thanks to Jens' brilliant second-half stop. Raul hit the inside of the post from 25 yards, leaving Lehmann grounded. The ball rebounded to the Spanish striker and his second effort seemed to be creeping inside the far corner, but the German keeper got up and somehow managed to paw the ball aside.

Arsenal 1-0 Sheffield United, FA Cup Semi-Final. April 13, 2004.
Seaman, approaching his 40th birthday, responded to those who felt his best days were behind him with probably the save of his life. Seaman was out of position when Paul Peschisolido nodded goalwards from close-range but, with an equaliser seemingly inevitable, the keeper threw himself across goal and reached back to somehow claw the ball away from under the crossbar.

Sampdoria 3-2 Arsenal, UEFA Cup Winners Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg. April 20, 1995.
Arsenal had dug deep to take a thrilling tie to penalties and now it was up to Seaman. The keeper saved two of Sampdoria's spot-kicks and then bettered them both with a stunning full-length stop to deny Attilio Lombardo. The Italian struck his penalty firmly but Seaman reached up high to keep the ball out and take Arsenal into the Final.

Arsenal 4-0 Manchester United, Division One. August 22, 1970.
George Best rarely missed when one-on-one with the keeper, but on this occasion Wilson stopped the Irishman in style. Best had gone clean through, leaving the Arsenal back four in his wake, and the great man attempted to jink past Wilson. The goalkeeper dived bravely at Best's feet and plucked the ball off his toe. "It was a trademark Wilson save, my speciality," said the man himself.
