Chosen by Dave Seager as his favourite ever goal:

So many, wonderful goals, and so many wonderful players but of course those scored against Tottenham in Arsenal wins are particularly special. Perhaps even more so in a match that Arsenal won 5-2 having been 2 down.

Tomas Rosicky, was a player who, mainly through persistent injuries, never hit the heights for the Arsenal that he did captaining his country but despite this he was hugely popular with the fanbase. Much of this was because Little Mozart embraced everything it meant to be a Gunner. He wore the cannon with pride whenever selected and never let us doubt that he hated the old enemy as we did.
Perhaps this is why Rosicky described the incredible comeback in February 2012 has his finest in the famous red and white, and his striker to put his team ahead 3-2 was a magnificent goal, that embodied both the Czech stars quality and his determination. He began the move just inside the Spurs half, running at speed he fed the ball wide to Sagna, then continued his run, at full title to get on the end of a return pass from his teammate. He had no right to get there in front of the Spurs defender and even less to skilfully flick it over a despairing keeper.
Simply a beautiful goal from Rosicky.
