Video footage has emerged of Koln fans appearing to fight with stewards in the Emirates stadium, after Arsenal’s Europa League opener with the Bundesliga outfit was delayed to 9.05pm “in the interests of crowd safety”.

Koln fans had entered the ground in the home end and were attempting to join their fellow away supporters, it was reported by BBC Sport.
