After 62 days without an Arsenal player playing a competitive game, the wait was over today as loanee Jordi Osei-Tutu featured for VfL Bochum at home to Heidenheim in the German second division.
Osei-Tutu, who was deployed on the right wing, certainly seized his opportunity as he found the net in the 34th minute.
Despite mainly operating on the right side of the pitch, Osei-Tutu switched to the left wing at times, and it was from there that his goal came about as he cut inside prior to finishing adroitly.
Bochum, who are attempting to avoid relegation, ran out 3-0 winners, with Anthony Losilla and Silvere Ganvoula also finding the net.
Osei-Tutu played 80 minutes before being replaced and has now scored two goals in his last three games. The youngster will hope to be involved again when Bochum face Karlsruher next Sunday.
The right-back is still awaiting his competitive first-team debut for Arsenal despite having been named on the bench for the first-team on several occasions.
