PICTURE: Yaya Sanogo towers above teammates in dressing room celebration photo

Emirates Outside Night

Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo made his first start for the club in the 2-1 win over Liverpool.

Yaya Sanogo led the line for Arsenal in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Liverpool, after we predicted that he would start last Friday.

His teammates took note of his involvement, by making him centre-stage in their now almost routine post-game dressing room photo.

Sanogo signed last summer from Auxerre on a free transfer, the only striker the club added, and he arrived off scoring four goals for France's team at the under-20 World Cup.

He had played just nine minutes of Premier League football all season due to a back injury, returning to training at the end of February.

Sanogo is 1 metre 91cm in height, one of the tallest players in the Arsenal squad, and the photo above certainly shows off his height.

He has clearly thrown his name into contention to feature later on in the season via his performance yesterday, and could just be the fresh pair of legs the club need up front.
