Tony Adams says the best moment of his Arsenal career came in 1998 when he scored an iconic goal against Everton to help the Gunners win the Premier League.

Former England captain Adams made 672 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions in an extraordinary career that spanned three decades.

Adams won four English top-flight titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners and says scoring against Everton to help Arsene Wenger’s side clinch the title in May 1998 was ‘orgasmic’.

Victory over Everton on May 3, 1998 would see Arsenal become champions and the Gunners secured a 4-0 win at Highbury, with Adams scoring the final goal late on.

‘For me it was very spiritual to be honest,’ the Arsenal legend told Sky Sports. ‘It was one of those orgasmic moments.

‘I’d been in recovery for two years – two years without a drink – and I was free in the head and feeling happy off the pitch as well as on it.

‘To burst through and smash that one in… from a lad who couldn’t kick it with his left foot when he was 11. To smash that one in with my weaker foot was amazing.

‘Someone said to me the other day, “I thought you were left-footed” and that’s the biggest compliment you can give me!

‘It was a very special moment. I’ve got some great memories but that’s probably the best.’

Wenger’s Arsenal amassed 78 points during the 1997-98 season, pipping rivals Manchester United to the Premier League title by one point.
