This season Arsene Wenger has treated the Europa League exactly as you would have expected him to, namely playing as many fringe players as possible.

Given Arsenal’s bloated first-team squad this has actually worked out pretty nicely and on Thursday one of those fringe players gave the fans at the Emirates something to remember.

Mathieu Debuchy, who has had so many problems with injury, smashed home an excellent opening goal and Arsenal fans were rightfully jubilant.
