The best of Arshavin

Arsenal led Blackburn by one goal at Emirates Stadium when Denilson initiated a slick move in the 65th minute. The Brazilian swapped passes with Alex Song and then curved a perfect pass into Arshavin's path on the left.

He collected the ball near the byline and, at that moment, there was little on and much to do.

But Arshavin dropped a shoulder, shimmied past Danny Simpson and found the perfect trajectory from the acutest of angles to lift the ball over Paul Robinson and into the top corner.

Arsenal fans have seen a broad spectrum of spectacular goals down the years and this was one of the best.
