Only a few gunners have achieved this feast in the English top flight

Arsenal have been fortunate to have several outstanding football players over the years. Yet it was in Highbury, that Herbert Chapman, the godfather to modern football, was born. Since then, many players have come from there to light up not only North London but the entire world. The club has continued to produce elite players who have scored significant numbers of goals.

We examine the top 10 players with 10+ goals and assists in a single Premier League season in this article. 

10. Bukayo Saka; (12g 10a)

Bukayo Saka has broken another Arsenal record by becoming the first player to have double digits in assists and goals in the Premier League so far this season. In Sunday's 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace, Saka increased his individual totals to 12 and 10 by first assisting Gabriel Martinelli's first goal and then scoring the second and fourth goals.

9. Santi Cazorla: (12g 11a)

One of their most talented players has yet to reach his full potential. Santi Cazorla's greatest performance for Arsenal this year has yet to be seen.

In fact, the fans selected Cazorla as the team's Player of the Year after he presented a compelling argument for being Arsenal's finest player. In the 2012–13 Premier League season, Cazorla scored 12 goals and provided 11 assists. His contribution was crucial to Arsenal's eventual Champions League qualifying.

8. Robin van Persie: (11g 10a)

He enjoyed his greatest season overall for Arsenal, scoring a career-high 20 goals across all competitions while also leading the league with 11 assists and contributing 11 goals of his own. Van Persie didn't have the most productive spell with Arsenal, but he was a prolific goal-scorer and further cemented his dominance at Manchester United by winning the Premier League.

7. Dennis Bergkamp: (12g 13a)

Dennis Bergkamp, who played for Arsenal for 11 trophy-laden seasons and scored 120 goals in 423 games, will go down in history as one of the Club's all-time best players. Bergkamp was more important to the first team in 1996–97 despite playing in fewer games and contributing 13 assists. Bergkamp completed 38.5 games each season for Arsenal on average.

6. Theo Walcott: (14g 10a)

Walcott's career has been peculiar; he has spent practically all of it on the periphery, flirting with success. a player who is characterised by his speed and inability to dominate a game. a tremendous goalscorer who was never a terrific goalscorer. Number seven on Arsenal's all-time appearance list in the Premier League. In 2012–2013, he had his most productive season, scoring 14 goals and dishing out 10 assists.

5. Cesc Fabregas: (15g 13a)

In his 458 club games thus far, he has contributed to 255 goals, providing him a rate of more than one goal or assist per game. With the two putting up such remarkable stats, it is easy to understand why Jose Mourinho called Fabregas a "dream" for the striker to play in front of. Fàbregas had a phenomenal season in 2009–2010, making 48 appearances across all competitions and contributing 15 goals and 13 assists.

4. Dennis Bergkamp: (16g 11a)

The Dutchman pulled off a trademark Bergkamp madness on the way to Arsenal's title-winning season, Arsene Wenger's first with the club. Bergkamp, who adopted the moniker "the Iceman," scored 16 league goals for the Gunners that year, particularly three strikes that were just spectacular in the month of August in the 1997–1998 campaign. Bergkamp scored so many goals that he not only took home the August Goal of the Month title from Match of the Day but also placed second AND third.

3. Alexis Sanchez: (24g 11a)

Sanchez scored 25 goals in all competitions in his debut season with Arsenal, along with the second goal in the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa. He was also awarded the Player of the Year at Arsenal. In 166 games, Sanchez earned 80 goals for Arsenal, adding two hat tricks. In addition, he contributed 45 assists, making him the player at the club who contributed to the most goals during his tenure there.

2. Thierry Henry: (24g 14a)

Henry developed into a productive scorer and Arsenal's all-time top goalscorer with 228 goals across all tournaments under longstanding mentor and coach Arsène Wenger. Thierry Henry was the league's leading goal scorer in the 2001–2002 season with 24 goals. Also, during his leadership, Arsenal won both the FA Cup and the Barclays Premier League.

He is the only player with much more than 20 goals scored as a result. In four different seasons, Thierry Henry led the Premier League in goals scored (2001-02; 2003-04; 2004-05 and 2005-06). Alan Shearer comes the nearest with the three Golden Boots that decorate his mantlepiece, but no one else has achieved this level of success.

1. Thierry Henry: (25g 20a)

One of Arsenal's most illustrious players, Thierry Henry gave supporters cherished memories while he played in North London. Henry scored 360 goals in club senior football, 228 of which came during his two stays at Arsenal, which spanned eight and a half seasons.

He continued to lead Arsenal to titles every season, though, and his most outstanding season was the 2004–2005 campaign when he scored 25 goals.
