For a player who scored many iconic goals, Thierry Henry's strike from October 2000 against Manchester United remains special. 

The French star, with his back turned to goal, chipped the ball into the air before turning and volleying it, lobbing the ball over international team mate Fabian Barthez. 

Santi Cazorla was given the task to try and recreate to goal for the Premier League television show and BT Sport. The Spaniard had five attempts to score the goal, and it came surprisingly easy to the 31-year-old. 

With the help of Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil, it only took Cazorla two attempts to score the volley, and what a goal it was. 

Cazorla will have a chance to recreate the goal once more this weekend in the Premier League. Arsenal play Chelsea on Saturday evening at the Emirates Stadium.
