Who could ever forget this video classic game from 2009, when Andrey Arshavin proved himself as a genius at Anfield, and also put a huge dent in the hopes of Liverpool winning their first title for 20 years under Rafael Benitez.
I had watched Arshavin at the 2008 World Cup and he was a truly amazing player, and I was astounded that Arsenal managed to sign him for a record fee of £15 million at the time. He was sensational for us and everyone loved watching him destroy the Premier League defences.
But this game where he scored four goals against Liverpool at Anfield was his finest hour for Arsenal…
These were the teams that day…..
Liverpool: Reina, Arbeloa, Carragher, Agger, Aurelio, Alonso, Mascherano, Benayoun, Kuyt (El Zhar 86), Riera (Babel 74), Torres.
Goals: Torres 49, Benayoun 56, Torres 72, Benayoun 90.
Arsenal: Fabianski, Sagna, Toure, Silvestre, Gibbs, Arshavin, Song, Fabregas, Denilson (Walcott 65), Nasri, Bendtner (Diaby 90).
Goals: Arshavin 36, 67, 70, 90.
Sit back and enjoy these great highlights.
