The Arsenal Supporters Club also voted for Jordan Nobbs’ cross-cum-shot in the 5-0 win over Chelsea as their goal of the season. Jordan spoke with Arseblog News after the game and confessed that the effort was meant to be a cross. “I should keep this quiet, but yeah it was meant to be a cross! But I’ll take it! I was so glad my second one went in so I could show that even if I’m a really bad crosser, I can at least shoot when I mean to!”
