With the Premier League season coming to an end, let’s have a look at our top-five Arsenal goals of the 2018/19 campaign.
Arsenal may not have got as many results as they wanted this season, but the team scored a number of memorable goals along the way.
Here are our top five, along with videos and the relevant timestamp to skip to for the goals. Give them a watch to relive the kind of excitement you usually get from an online casino like 21.co.uk.
Ramsey vs Fulham (skip to 0:04)
There’s no surprise this goal makes the list, as it also featured in the BBC’s top-three goals of the season for the entire league. It really was a fantastic team goal, topped off with an inventive finish from Aaron Ramsey.
Torreira vs Huddersfield (skip to 1:43)
This one was all about the finish, as well as the timing of the goal. With seven minutes left to avoid a goalless draw against a poor Huddersfield side, Lucas Torreira stepped up to win Arsenal three points they couldn’t afford to miss out on. He executed the overhead kick to perfection.
Aubameyang vs Leicester (skip to 0:55)
My personal favourite from the list, this was another team effort that started all the way back from Bernd Leno in goal.
The move went through Rob Holding, Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Mesut Özil, Matteo Guendouzi, Hector Bellerin and Alexandre Lacazette before Özil set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the finish. It was a fast and flowing counter where each player played their part perfectly.
Aubameyang vs Spurs (skip to 7:39)
This goal against Spurs came from another counter-attack, and you won’t find one much faster. With Arsenal 2-1 down, Bellerin played a fantastic ball in behind the defence, which Ramsey cut back with his first touch for Aubameyang to finish excellently from outside the box.
Xhaka vs Palace (skip to 1:32)
There really were a lot of good goals in October! Arsenal scored a number of free-kick goals this season, but Xhaka’s against Crystal Palace has to be the pick of the lot. The midfielder had almost no angle to find the net, but his powerful and precise finish rocketed into the top corner to bring Arsenal level.
There are so many more that deserve a mention, from Xhaka’s free-kick against Newcastle to Lacazette’s tight-angle finishes against Chelsea and Cardiff. Özil’s trademark chipped finish has been on display a number of times, and Ramsey’s composure to score against Spurs was excellent.
Pretty much any Aubameyang goal against Valencia could’ve made the list, and Lacazette’s free-kick against Napoli came as close to featuring as any other. Let’s hope there are many more high-quality goals next season.
