Nicklas Bendtner's first start in an Arsenal shirt at the Emirates for two-and-a-half years ended with the Gunners failing to reach the League Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 11 seasons.

A titanic clash with Chelsea offered Bendtner the opportunity to prove why he warrants a place in one of football's most illustrious squads.

Not only did the Danish international fail, his performances was so abject that he also managed to spark a stream of Twitter jokes.
