Samir Nasri scored his first Champions League goal for Sevilla on Tuesday night.

The former Arsenal winger - on loan at the Spanish club from Manchester City - grabbed the only goal of the game as the Liga outfit edged out Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia.

It was the 29-year-old's third goal for the club since leaving the Premier League on a season-long loan, having previously netted twice for Jorge Sampaoli's side in Liga action so far.

Nasri, who joined Arsenal in 2008 and left in 2011 after a superb 2010-11 campaign, rolled back the years with a stellar overall performance, and some Gunners fans were left raving about the Frenchman on Twitter afterwards

It appears as if absence has made the heart grow fonder for some Arsenal supporters, given his acrimonious departure five years ago.

His decision to join City rankled with fans of the North London club by virtue of the fact he left immediately posted his first and last productive season in an Arsenal shirt.

He only had one year to go on his contract and manager Arsene Wenger decided to let him leave, which proved a good move for Nasri as he won the Premier League title in his first season at the Etihad, and another two years later.
