Arsenal were already cruising… then a Highbury hero did this

first_imgA 3-0 win for Arsenal against Boro 26 years ago today (19/11/88) put the Gunners second behind Norwich in the First Division table.A 20-year-old Paul Merson scored twice, but the highlight was a stunning solo goal from the late David Rocastle, whose class on the ball made him a favourite among the Highbury faithful.As the game drew to a close, Rocastle weaved his way through the opposition defence to score the game’s final goal.The former midfielder played 277 times for Arsenal between 1985 and 1992 and was just 33 when he died in March 2001.
