He may be impressing all and sundry in Italy with his rampaging runs down the wing for Roma, but here is a glimpse of the Gervinho we all remember from his painful two years at Arsenal.

During Roma's 4-0 home victory of Catania on Sunday, with the goal at his mercy from just over six yards after goalkeeper Alberto Frison parried the ball into his path, the Ivorian could only hit the post, leaving those at the Stadio Olimpico in a state of shock.

But Gervinho, who joined Roma for £11m in the summer and has been one of the standout performers this season in Serie A, did not let the miss get him down too much. He dusted himself off and scored Roma's final goal in the rout.

In 63 appearances (44 starts) for Arsenal between 2011 and 2013, the 26-year-old scored just 11 goals.
