In the latest ‘best’ poll on Arsenal.com, Thierry Henry claimed the accolade of Arsenal’s best long-range Premier League goal.
Henry himself scored a number of screamers during his Arsenal career, but – according to the fans who voted – none better than this one against West Ham back in 2002.
Arsenal’s record goalscorer claimed an extremely narrow victory with 25% of the vote.
Robert Pirès’ curling effort at Anfield from the unbeaten season was third with 23%, and a shock result saw Mathieu Flamini finish in 2nd – he won 24% of the votes for his effort from distance against Newcastle back in 2008, during his first stint at the club.
My personal favourite – Henry’s goal v Manchester City at Highbury in 2004 – didn’t even make the shortlist, so what do I know?
