When Bergkamp moved to Arsenal in August 1995 he left with the words of Inter president Massimo Moratti ringing in his ears: "They will be lucky if he scores 10 goals this season."
At first that seemed prescient with "Desperate Den" headlines accompanying each match that passed without a goal.
But after seven blanks he scored a brace against Southampton at Highbury to set the ball rolling.
"You could call it a bad start if you compare it to everything that came after. It took time to get used to the change from Italy, but I enjoyed it and once that first goal went in it took the pressure off."
