Adebayor v Villarreal, Champions League, April 2009
Arsenal were staring down the barrel of a first-leg defeat at El Madrigal when Fabregas picked out Adebayor just inside the penalty area. The Togo striker controlled the ball on his chest and adjusted his body to execute a brilliant scissors kick into the bottom corner past a helpess Villarreal keeper.

Adebayor v Liverpool, Champions League, April 2008
The moment Walcott came of age? The England winger was instrumental in Adebayor's Anfield strike, collecting the ball just outside his own area and sprinting 60 yards past a string of defenders before squaring the ball for his Togolese team-mate to tap in. A magical moment, sadly short-lived.

Fabregas v AC Milan, Champions League, March 2008
Arsenal's tense tie with Milan was heading for extra time when Cesc collected possession in the middle of the park and powered past Italian international Gennaro Gatusso before unleashing a rasping low shot which flew into the bottom corner from fully 30 yards. Adebayor added a second to seal a famous win.

Henry v Real Madrid, Champions League, February 2006
A night no Arsenal fan will forget. The winning margin could have been greater but we settled for one virtuoso goal from Henry as the captain collected the ball on the halfway line, held off Ronaldo, skipped past Mejia and Guti and muscled past Ramos before firing a shot past Casillas and into the corner.

Edu v Celta Vigo, Champions League, February 2004
A tale of two Edus. Arsenal's version prodded us ahead before his Celta namesake equalised. Then our Edu collected the ball 25 yards out, slalomed past a couple of challenges, cut back onto his supposedly weaker right foot and curled a beauty into the top corner.

Henry v Inter Milan, Champions League, November 2003
Arsenal were deservedly ahead when Henry latched onto Parlour's clearing header with five minutes to go. He outpaced Zanetti, checked his run just inside the box and then beat the Argentine again before slamming a fierce shot in off the far post. Two more late goals sealed a magnificent 5-1 win.

Parlour v Valencia, Champions League, April 2001
Highbury was still buzzing from Henry's equaliser two minutes earlier when Parlour latched onto Kanu's flick and stormed through the midfield. He let fly from 25 yards with a shot which zipped into the top corner, giving Canizares no chance. The North Bank was literally rocking.

Parlour v Werder Bremen, Uefa Cup, March 2000
It took Ray Parlour just eight minutes to stamp his authority on this Uefa Cup tie. Cutting inside from the right flank, the midfielder appeared to have few options. But Parlour took matters into his own hands as he swiped the outside of his right foot at the ball and watched it swerve into the net. Television replays later measured his standing shot at 68 miles per hour.

Kanu v Deportivo la Coruna, Uefa Cup, March 2000
Arsenal led this tie 3-1 when Kanu applied the coup de grace with 12 minutes left. The Nigerian exploited a slack back pass, following the ball in from 30 yards out and cheekily slipping the ball past Songo'o after he had dived the wrong way. Replays showed that Kanu only touched the ball once - to score.

Smith v Parma, European Cup Winners' Cup, May 1994
The ultimate 'One-nil to the Arsenal'. After soaking up pressure from their stellar opponents, a misjudged overhead clearance from Minotti fell to Smith on the edge of the area in the 21st minute. He chested the ball down and fired in a left-foot volley which bounced in off the post.
