(Video) What a stunning run from substitute Reiss Nelson during Arsenal v Cologne last night

After a dominant North London Derby win against Spurs on the weekend, Arsenal slumped to a shock 1-0 loss away to Cologne in the Europa League last night.

Despite having better possession, better passing and far more chances, Arsenal just couldn’t manage to break the stubborn German defence on the night.

Arsene Wenger decided to rest his star trio of Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette and opted to include a number of the youngsters instead.

One amongst these was 17-year-old Reiss Nelson, who came on for Theo Walcott for the last ten minutes of the game.

The young Englishman produced a beautiful run, taking on 4 defenders and managing to get a shot at goal which was thwarted away by goalkeeper Timo Horn.

A brilliant 10-minute cameo from Nelson and with qualification for the next round all but sorted, Arsene Wenger might even given him a first European start when BATE Borisov visit the Emirates next time round.
