Arsenal’s greatest goals of 2016
2016 was a curious and somewhat typically Arsenal year for Arsenal.
It saw the Gunners achieve their highest ever Premier League finish, second place, for over a decade. But rather than celebrations, most found cause for criticism as the unlikeliest of champions, Leicester City, beat them to the top flight crown.
It was a similar case during the first half of the 2016/17 campaign. Barring an opening day defeat to Liverpool, the north Londoners started strongly – but all their good work was undone during the festive period with disappointing results against Everton, Manchester City and Bournemouth.
Regardless of form, league standing or titles, however, Arsenal can always guarantee one thing – gorgeous goals from all over the pitch.
With that in mind and 2017 well underway, we take a look back at Arsenal’s five best goals of 2017. Which strike was your favourite? Let us know in the comments section below!
