Arsenal fans were understandably delighted upon hearing the news that Alexis Sanchez would don the famous No.7 shirt next season.
The Chilean is the latest in a long line of big names to do so, including Tomas Rosicky, Robert Pires, David Platt, David Rocastle and Liam Brady.
With great power comes great responsibility, though, and Sanchez will now be expected to deliver the goods for a third-straight season in Arsenal colours.

Following the announcement, fans were curious as to who would inherit the equally popular no.8 shirt, once worn by Mikel Arteta and Freddie Ljungberg.
However, it's now been revealed who will have the honour of wearing it: Aaron Ramsey.
Yes, the Wales international will shed his No.16 jersey and take on the No.8, somewhat suggesting a starting birth awaits him next term.
Arsenal posted a video on Twitter to commemorate the occasion.
However, the reaction to Ramsey becoming the club's new No.8 was mixed to say the least. There were some pleased by the decision...
Whilst others weren't so optimistic...
Ouch. It's easy to understand both sides of the argument, of course, given Ramsey is undoubtedly capable of great things but often flatters to deceive.
Arsenal fans will only hope their new No.8 can rediscover his best football alongside Granit Xhaka, whose arrival was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.
The Swiss midfielder cost a reported £30 million - becoming the club's third most expensive ever signing - and could prove to be the perfect partner to Ramsey.
Whilst Xhaka will sit in front of Arsenal's defence in a deep-lying playmaker role, his Welsh teammate can roam free to contribute in both attack and defence.
Further additions are undoubtedly needed at the Emirates Stadium, but the signing of Xhaka - combined with Ramsey and Sanchez's new numbers - represents a superb start to the summer transfer window.
