A lot of fans are reminiscing over a spectacular performance by former goalkeeper Rob Green as they beat 1-0 in 2007 at the Emirates after the club posted the highlights on social media.

The 19th placed side managed to beat their North London rivals in fourth place, shocking many, via BBC Sport, and the Englishman in between the sticks was the main reason for this. One fan called it a ‘sensational performance.’

Not only did the victory help with their battle, as it moved them only two points from safety, but it also meant the club were the last team to beat at Highbury as well as the first to beat them at the Emirates, per 11v11.

boss at the time Alan Curbishley said, BBC Sport, “People say they missed chances but I tend to say Green saved them. When you come to a top four team you need your keeper to put in a 10/10 performance”

A goal from Bobby Zamora in the 45th minute was what separated the sides come the final whistle, and was also the third straight win in a row.

Here’s how fans reacted to the post on Twitter:
