GGG7: Eduardo v Burnley, March 2009

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

Eduardo is arguably Arsenal's most natural finisher since Ian Wright and this goal sums up why.

While Thierry Henry did much of his damage outside the area, Eduardo is a predator inside the box. Find him with a cross, a pass or a knockdown and the chances are he'll find the net.

This goal is so special because it's unique in Arsenal's history. Like Henry's backheel against Charlton, it was a perfect piece of improvisation.

Arsenal were one up at the time and piling on the pressure. Bacary Sagna, Alex Song and Abou Diaby linked up but the Frenchman was dispossessed by Kevin McDonald just inside the box. Andrey Arshavin retrieved the ball and found Song via Kieran Gibbs.

Song looked up and floated a perfect pass towards Eduardo, who had peeled away towards the far post. The Croatian had little time to adjust his feet as the ball arrived - so he improvised. With a flick of the left heel, Eduardo diverted the ball past Burnley keeper Brian Jensen.

It was the cheekiest of finishes and it proved once and for all that Eduardo was back after his injury nightmare.
