Gervinho was on the pitch for just 29 minutes, but his appearance dominated proceedings.

He lifted home a shot from Jack Wilshere's perceptive pass in the opening stages and turned home Theo Walcott's cross after 15 minutes, before being replaced after 30 minutes after a collision with Cologne keeper Michael Rensing.

Then, on the stroke of half-time, Jenkinson swung his right foot at a high ball attempting a clearance yet somehow contrived to lob Wojciech Szczesny in the Arsenal goal from some 20 yards.
