Arsenal star Rosicky admits Tottenham strike was "one of his best"

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky was delighted with his wonder strike against Tottenham today, proclaiming it was one of his best.

Rosicky's strike after just 70 seconds gave Arsenal the win, but the goal itself was a moment of magic, hitting an unstoppable first time half volley past Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and into the top corner of the goal.

Czech international Rosicky has had an outstanding season under Wenger and has been rewarded a new two-year deal to stay at the Emirates Stadium, and his strike today was reminiscent of some of the incredible strikes that made him such a household name during his time in Germany with Borussia Dortmund.

But despite all those great goals, Rosicky stated that today's goal was one of the finest he has scored during his long career, and even admitted that he wanted to play Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in on goal rather than take on a shot from a difficult angle.

"I just wanted to play Chambo through and his technique is not the best," joked Rosicky. "It bounced back to me I just wanted to hit it. It's not what you are thinking about, it was a great strike."

"Yeah it was definitely one of the best and I'm delighted by a goal like that. What is most important was that we won the game."

Rosicky's goal condemned Spurs to their third defeat in a week, and pushed Arsenal back up into third place, just four points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand - making next weekend's game at Stamford Bridge between the two sides that much more important as Arsenal chase their first silverware since 2005.
