Already leading 1-0 through Roberto Inglese, Gervinho scored the second two minutes after the break with a stunning solo effort.

Receiving the ball on the edge of his own box, the 31-year-old reminded his opponents of his blistering pace.

Marauding through the variety of players who attempted to take him on, Gervinho all but ran the length of the pitch before firing an inch-perfect finish past the goalkeeper.

Gervinho, who was at the Emirates from 2011 to 2013, joked to Sky Sport Italia he wouldn't call the slalom move his best career goal.

I don't know if it's my best goal, as I've scored many in my time.

Meanwhile, Parma coach Roberto D'Aversa was dumbstruck after Gervinho's stunner.

I hadn't seen a goal like that for many years.

I am fortunate to have such a great player in the squad and he arrived with remarkable humility. He understands exactly where we are coming from and that amazed me.
