Emmanuel Adebayor slotted low to give Arsenal the lead and Theo Walcott rounded Volkan Demirel to make it two.

Fenerbahce got a goal back when Dani Guiza’s volley was poked into his own net by Mikael Silvestre but Abou Diaby fired the visitors into a 3-1 lead.

After Alex Song volleyed a fourth Guiza lobbed Manuel Almunia, but Aaron Ramsey came on and drilled a deserved fifth.

Ramsey replaced the superb Diaby on 73 minutes and provided a fitting end to a memorable evening for the north London club.

The Gunners were applauded from the field of play by the home supporters who, despite seeing their side’s chances of reaching the knockout rounds suffer a potentially fatal blow, recognised a fine display of attacking football.

Arsenal are now two points clear of Dynamo Kiev after they beat Porto away from home to leapfrog the Portuguese side into second place.
