Sehrou Guirassy converted from the penalty spot to give FC Koln a much needed win over Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

Arsene Wenger continued to field a relatively weaker lineup in the Europa League. However, FC Koln took full advantage of the weakened starting lineup to register a narrow 1-0 win over the Gunners that will go a long way in boosting the morale of a side that is currently stacked at the bottom of Bundesliga.

The win also saw FC Koln jump up to second in their Europa League group and stay alive in the race to qualify for the knockout phase of the competition.

Twitter did not spare Arsenal, despite the Gunners fielding a second string squad.

One of the few positives to come out of the result was Jack Wilshere playing the entire ninety minutes and looking comfortable on the pitch – another step towards his long-awaited renaissance. However, his performance was disappointing on the night and he had to bear the brunt.
