Stamford Bridge was the stadium that hosted a truly memorable game which saw Arsenal come from two goals down to beat London rivals Chelsea with 15 minutes to go. Two headers from Tore Andre Flo and a Dan Petrescu strike put the Blues 2-0 up as the West London team looked in complete control. However, one particular striker, Kanu, single handedly destroyed Chelsea. The Nigerian scored three quick-fire goals against goalkeeper Ed De Goey, who had conceded just four goals in nine previous games. The African star scored in the 75th, 83rd and 90th minutes to complete a stunning comeback.
