High point

Scored both goals in a tough away win at Wolves in the Premier League. Chamakh set a Premier League record by finding the net in both the 1st and 90th minute of the game, the 1st a trademark header from a cross, the 2nd a composed finish from a quick counterattack.

Low point

Partially at fault for Arsenal's comical home defeat to Tottenham in the league. After scoring in the 1st half to help put the Gunners two goals up, Chamakh twice spurned good goalscoring opportunities by turning back away from goal and passing to teammates, a feature of his game that was to become more apparent during his loss of form in the second half of the season.
