Arsenal legend Thierry Henry tended to specialize in the spectacular, and his goal against Liverpool at Highbury in 2004 came at an opportune moment for the Gunners.
It has been a terrible couple of weeks for Wenger's men. Knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League, they found themselves 2-1 down at home to Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen and co and another loss might have damaged The Gunners' confidence and derailed their season.
But up stepped Henry to score a superb hat-trick that sent them seven points clear at the top with a thrilling 4-2 win. The pick of the goals saw Henry gain possession near the halfway line before setting off on a typically brilliant run that left Dietmar Hamann and Jamie Carragher bamboozled before slotting past Dudek with Liverpool defenders running into one another and ending up on their backsides.
Here's that stunning hat-trick again.
Is Henry the best foreign player ever to grace the Premier League?
