Alan Sunderland’s late winner at Wembley in 1979 ensured he would never be forgotten in Arsenal’s history. Leading 2 – 0 in ‘The Five Minute Cup Final’, control was inexplicably wrested away with two quick-fire Manchester United goals. The contorted face of the winning goal scorer as he wheels away across the turf betrays the emotion and the pain of a twisted ankle.
On this day, he scored the last of 92 goals for the club. Injury would restrict him to just two more appearances for the club before moving on, Sunderland signed for Ipswich Town in February 1984.
