Take a trip down memory lane and then vote for your favourite below!
Caitlin Foord v Lyon
October 19, 2022
We had a dream start to our Champions League campaign by defeating French and European champions Lyon 5-1 on their own patch. Goals from Beth Mead (2), Caitlin Foord (2) and Frida Maanum gave Jonas Eidevall’s Gunners a winning start, but it was Foord’s strike that was a cut above the rest as she bent an effort from outside the box beyond the helpless Christiane Endler.
Lia Walti vs Liverpool
October 23, 2022
Our win at Liverpool equalled a Women’s Super League record of 12 successive wins, which was kickstarted by Lia’s wonderful first-half strike. Liverpool cleared a corner but only as far as our No. 13 on the edge of the box, who took the ball down with her left before unleashing a fierce strike with her right that flew into the net.
Laura Wienroither v Manchester United
November 19, 2022
Laura showed superb technique to produce a perfect first-time volley to turn a Katie McCabe cross into the net and fire us ahead at a jubilant Emirates Stadium. Unfortunately, Manchester United completed a late comeback to dent our title hopes, but no one can take away the stunning finish from Laura.
Vivianne Miedema v Everton
December 3, 2022
Emily Ramsey proved tough to beat in between the sticks for Everton during this meeting, but not for Viv who toyed with the Toffees' defence before angling a well-struck shot across the face of goal and into the roof of the net to confirm a narrow 1-0 win.
Frida Maanum v FC Zurich
December 21, 2022
Frida claimed a hat-trick in an emphatic 9-1 win over FC Zurich, but her third goal was the pick of the bunch. Our Norwegian midfield maestro was given a generous amount of space just outside the penalty area and did what she does best: unleashing a sumptuous strike into the top corner.
Stina Blackstenius v Chelsea
March 5, 2023
Stina dragged us back into the Continental Cup Final after falling a goal behind to Sam Kerr’s early opener and sparked an Arsenal comeback to claim the trophy for the sixth time. Frida’s attempted through ball was cut out but fell kindly for Stina, who calmly slotted home the equaliser before we went on to win 3-1.
Caitlin Foord v Tottenham Hotspur
March 25, 2023
Caitlin’s wonder strike helped us earn bragging rights over Tottenham in a comfortable 5-1 victory. The forward ran at goal and made some space to produce a curled shot from outside the box which glanced off the post as it found the bottom corner.
Frida Maanum v Bayern Munich
March 29, 2023
We reached our first Champions League semi-final in 10 years after overturning a one-goal deficit with a 2-0 second-leg triumph. Kim, Stina and Leah Williamson combined on the edge of the box before Frida struck a beauty into the far top corner on a memorable night at Emirates Stadium.
Katie McCabe v Manchester City
April 2, 2023
Katie bounced back from injury fears to star in our 2-1 comeback win against Man City that would eventually secure third place in the league. After Frida drew us level, Katie picked up a short corner, drove into the penalty area and sent a thumping shot that whistled through a crowded six-yard box and rippled the net at the back post.
Frida Maanum v Leicester City
May 5, 2023
Frida‘s effort against Leicester summed up a fantastic season for our Norwegian star, who scored the only goal in a 1-0 win. With the ball close to her feet on the edge of the box, she opened up her body and looped a wonderful effort over the goalkeeper and watched the ball drop in at the back post.
