GGG36: Cesc Fabregas v Tottenham, 2007

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

Cesc Fabregas makes his first impression on the Top 50 with this ferocious north London derby strike.

Back in September 2007, the 20-year-old had already established himself as the lynchpin of Arsenal’s midfield - but not really as a goalscorer.

Indeed, his previous season’s best goal-tally was a meagre four but he’d end 2007/08 with 12. This was his fifth in Arsenal’s opening eight games as the Gunners started the season with gusto.

Even a trip to White Hart Lane couldn’t stop them, although they needed to come from behind to get their three points.

After Gareth Bale’s 15th-minute opener, Arsène Wenger’s men had to wait until just after the hour-mark for Emmanuel Adebayor to equalise.

The momentum was with them and, with 10 minutes left on the clock, Arsenal took the lead.

Alexander Hleb started the counter-attack by finding Robin van Persie inside the Gunners’ half. The striker found Tomas Rosicky who in turn fed Fabregas 35 yards from goal.

The Spaniard took one touch and, with the Spurs back four still backing off, he let fly. The searing right-foot effort flashed across Paul Robinson into his top right-hand corner.

It was a worthy matchwinner but Arsenal weren’t done there. And Adebayor’s second - Arsenal’s third - also features in this countdown.
