Limpar v Liverpool(H) 03-20-1992
The final season of the old First Division saw defending-champion Arsenal slip. After winning the title by seven points the previous season, George Graham’s side were well off the pace by the time Liverpool visited for the penultimate home game of the 1991/92 season.
But despite being out of the title race, Arsenal still managed to finish the campaign in style.
The game came during a goal-crazy period in which the Gunners netted 12 times in four games and one of those goals was true highlight-reel material.
When Anders Limpar tackled Ian Rush eight yards inside Arsenal’s half, it seemed a rather benign play. Liverpool had several defenders behind the ball and only Kevin Campbell was beyond Limpar.
But as two Liverpool players closed-in, Campbell was put in an offside position and Limpar was forced into a quick decision. Reds’ keeper Mike Hooper, who was standing on the edge of his area, had no idea what was about to happen.
The Swede put his head down and punted the ball from just outside the center circle. His lob was perfect - powerful enough to give the hapless Hooper no chance, but hit with such finesse that the soaring shot still dropped well below the crossbar.
It was a moment of brilliance from an inspirational player.2 Feb 2011
