Arsenal 1-2 Galatasaray: Didier Drogba Wins Emirates Cup (PICTURES)

Didier Drogba scored 13 times against Arsenal for Chelsea, so it was inevitable he would return to inflict more damage upon the Gunners in a Galatasaray shirt on Sunday.

The Ivory Coast striker hit a faultless penalty and a superb winner, as the Turkish champions came from behind to defeat the Gunners 2-1 and claim the Emirates Cup.

Ever the pantomime villain in north London, Drogba won the penalty on 78 minutes in dubious circumstances, exaggerating a fall from Bacary Sagna's slight nudge.

Drogba milked his moment at the Emirates

There was nothing dubious about his humiliation of Per Mertesacker for the winner, though. The 35-year-old collected a cross-field ball from Wesley Sneijder before cutting inside the ambling German to drill his shot past Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczęsny.
