Arsenal 3-1 FC Köln—vote for Player Ratings and MOTM!

Arsenal overcame an all-too-familiar shaky start, conceding a silly but stil-exquisite goal when Ospina was forced to come off his line to clear the ball only to see Cordoba score from 50 yards out. From there until halftime, it looked as if Köln could get away with sitting back to defend the lead. However, Kolašinac came on in the second half and electrified the Emirates with a stunning strike, doing his level-best to channel Lukas Podolski, and from there, Köln crumbled. Alexis and then Bellerín got in on the action, and Arsenal come away with a much-needed Europa League win. That's two on the bounce as we prepare to invade Stamford Bridge. Enough for now; let's get down to the poll to rate the lads!
