Top 10 goal scorers for Arsenal in champions league

Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs to never win the Champions League, Arsenal has had some of the best attackers in the competition’s history to represent them.

For 19 straight seasons under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners qualified for European football's premier club competition, and have scored over 300 goals as well as reaching the final back in 2006.

 

1. Thierry Henry

Appearances: 77

Goals: 35

Arsenal's greatest ever goalscorer is unsurprisingly their most ruthless goal getter in the Champions League.

His legacy in Europe with the Gunners would be even stronger had Thierry Henry been on the right side of the 2006 final against Barcelona.

 

 

2. Robin van Persie

Appearances: 45

Goals: 18

Van Persie was not only a phenomenal striker, he was one of the purest strikers of a football.

Scored 18 Champions League goals for the club, but may be remembered in the competition most for his ridiculous red card against Barcelona.

 

 

 

3. Theo Walcott

Appearances: 59

Goals: 15

A winger who scored over 100 goals for the club, Walcott was always a threat out wide for the Gunners.

His blistering pace and periods of superb form helped him to 15 goals in 59 Champions League appearances.

 

 

4. Cesc Fabregas

Appearances: 55

Goals: 13

One of the greatest players of the Emirates era, Fabregas always stood out on the biggest stage for Arsenal before moving back to his boyhood club Barcelona in 2011.

 

 

5. Freddie Ljungberg

Appearances: 64

Goals: 13

The Swede made a name for himself at Arsenal with his trademark red mohawk and goals from midfield, so it's no surprise to see he notched double figures in the Champions League.

 

 

 

6. Olivier Giroud

Appearances: 29

Goals: 12

Giroud is often thought of as an underwhelming performer for Arsenal, but his European record isn't half bad.

No wonder he was a favorite with the fans despite finding himself on the bench far too often.

 

7. Robert Pires

Appearances: 63

Goals: 11

A key member of the 'Invincibles' squad, Pires' time in the Champions League at Arsenal is mostly remembered for being subbed off in the '06 final after Jens Lehmann was sent off.

Shame really, as the Frenchman was an absolute box office failure.

 

 

8. Alexis Sanchez

 

Appearances: 22

Goals: 9

A superstar signing from Barcelona, Sanchez delivered during his time at Arsenal. Seen as a villain now, his record in Europe wasn't one to be ashamed of either.

 

9. Lukas Podolski

Appearances: 12

Goals: 8

The German had a rocket in his boot throughout his career and it helped him to a very good European record for Arsenal.

His quality deserved more than the one FA Cup he won during his time in north London.

 

 

10. Emmanuel Adebayor

Appearances: 21

Goals: 8

A hero before his move to Manchester City, Adebayor had a respectable record in the competition including a goal in the memorable game against Liverpool in 2008.
