    Highbury's changing of the guard (2006)

  16. 16

    Jack takes the game to Xavi and Iniesta (2011)

    “We all knew Jack was a special talent but this was the match were he really showed everyone what he was all about. To be able to take the game to Barcelona in the manner that he did, at only 19 years old, was amazing.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)

  17. 17

    Andrey scores the winner against Barcelona (2011)

    "I love this picture because of the way Andrey casually strokes home the winning goal despite the pressure of the situation.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)

  18. 18

    The first English team to win at Dortmund (2013)

    “This picture was taken on my remote camera. I was in two minds about putting the remote out for the second half as it looked like it was going to rain quite heavily. Obviously I’m glad I did.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)

  19. 19

    Jack in the box (2013)

    “I chose to shoot this match from a different angle and after one minute Jack scored this goal which worked perfectly for me. It’s probably the fastest goal in Champions League history by an Englishman.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)

    Neuer in no man's land (2015)

    Alex comes of age (2016)

    “Like everyone, I was a little surprised that Alex started this match, but he fully justified his selection and played with amazing composure against such established internationals. It was great to see an academy youngster play one of the biggest stages in Europe.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)

  29. 29

    Mesut's moment of magic in Bulgaria (2016)

    “This picture just sums up Mesut. Technique, vision and composure. Once he knocked the ball past the keeper I kept thinking, ‘He has to shoot now’, but he kept putting defenders on the floor and then eventually rolled it into the net. It was a brilliant moment.” (David Price, Arsenal photographer)
