Lukas Podolski's stunning volley against Montpellier has been voted Goal of the Season by Arsenal's fans.

The Germany international found Olivier Giroud on the edge of the box and met the Frenchman's lofted return pass with a venomous first-time effort past the keeper.

Podolski's strike received 40 per cent of the votes cast in our official club poll.

Theo Walcott finished runner-up with 21 per cent for his hat-trick goal against Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium.

Theo took a short free-kick by the left touchline and jinked past two defenders before being brought down. He ignored calls for a penalty, getting back to his feet and clipping the ball nonchalantly into the net.

Santi Cazorla's cheeky back-heeled finish against West Ham United was third in our poll, just ahead of Podolski's long-range effort in the same game.

Another fine volley - this time from Kieran Gibbs at Swansea - was fifth.
