Arsenal fans absolutely love Robert Pires. The dreamy Frenchmen joined Arsenal from Marseille and after a slow start, was one of the key forces behind winning the title in 01/02 and the Invincibles season.
Here’s our take on Robert Pires’ top 5 goals for Arsenal.
Arsenal v Lazio
The French winger opened his account in the Champions League for Arsenal against Lazio with a beaut of a right football curler. 🙌
Arsenal v Liverpool
Arsenal were on a mini slump only winning 1 of 5 previous matching. They were drawing 1-1. Then in the 67th minutes Pires then secured a crucial victory after collecting a pass well outside the area in the 67th minute, he took a touch and curled a magnificent shot into the far corner. 👌
Arsenal v Spurs
The right foot curler was becoming a bit of a signature move for Pires. Against Spurs (of who he loved to score against) the ball came into Pires’ path from a Wiltord pass. Without a touch he looked up and curled the ball past an onlooking Neil Sullivan. 🔥
Arsenal v Aston Villa
In 01 02 Pires scored a worldy against Villa. Ljungberg played a long ball. Pires nonchalantly flicked it over Boateng and calmly lobbed it on the volley over a gloomy looking Peter Schmeichel. Obscene. 👊
Arsenal v Southampton
In a similar vein to the Villa goal Pires scored a sumptuous lob against Southampton. Arsenal were 5-1 up and Pires on a hat trick when the ball broke to him 30 yards out. Without a touch Pires looked up and curled the ball into the top corner. 🇫🇷
