GGG38: Anders Limpar v Liverpool, 1992

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

Goals from George Graham’s era are bound to feature heavily in our countdown and Anders Limpar’s spellbinding lob is the first.

It came during a goal-crazy period in which the Gunners bagged 12 goals in four games but this one was surely the best of the lot.

After winning the old First Division by seven points in the previous season, Graham’s side were well off the pace when Liverpool visited for the penultimate home game of the 1991/92 season.

But Arsenal, and notably Limpar, ensured that the Gunners finished the campaign in style.

When the Swede tackled Ian Rush eight yards inside Arsenal’s half, there seemed very little on - Liverpool had numbers behind the ball and only Kevin Campbell was beyond Limpar.

One man certainly oblivious to the danger was Reds keeper Mike Hooper, who was standing on the edge of his area.

With two players closing him down and Campbell now in an offside position Limpar made his decision in an instant.

The strike, from just outside the centre circle, was perfect. Firm enough to give the hapless Hooper no chance but with enough dip to get up and over with the ball eventually dropping two yards underneath the crossbar.

It was a moment of brilliance from one of Arsenal’s inspirations.
