We journey back to 2005 for Thursday's Goal of the Day and ahead of the weekend's game against Arsenal we remember a cracker from Shaun Wright-Phillips.

A season after the Invincibles, Kevin Keegan's Blues travelled to the old Highbury Stadium and it was the diminutive City winger who stole the show.

The away side started the brighter and Wright-Phillips - who was hailed by his manager following the game - gave City the lead they deserved in fine fashion.

Joey Barton dispossessed a then future Blue in Patrick Vieira and Wright-Phillips dispatched the resulting loose ball with aplomb from 25 yards, as his angled effort soared into the top corner, giving Manuel Almunia no chance.

The home side hit back late on to salvage a point, on a day when the performance and strike were deserving of all three.
