It was an unforgettable night for Arsenal fans as the Gunners as the mighty unbeatable Barcelona came to the Emirates in the European Cup.
David Villa gave the visitors the lead after 26 minutes, but Arsenal never gave up with Jack Wilshere showing his grit and determination at his very best. With fifteen minutes to go, we were still a goal down, but then the Real Van Persie gave us the equaliser, and with the clock ticking down our substitute Andrey Arshavin gave us a well-deserved winner.
Here was our team on that famous night…
