On Tuesday night, Sanchez Watt became the 85th Gunner to score on his Arsenal debut.

The teenager took just 68 minutes to get off the mark for the Club during the Carling Cup win over West Brom, slotting home from a narrow angle after Carlos Vela's shot had been parried.

Last month Thomas Vermaelen marked his debut with a goal and Watt becomes the fifth player in the Arsène Wenger era to achieve the feat alongside the Belgian, Emmanuel Adebayor, Freddie Ljungberg and Samir Nasri.

The list below are scorers when a league match was their major competition debut. Debut scorers in other competitions include Raphael Meade (Europe), Ian Wright and Danny Karbassiyoon (League Cup) and Gilberto (Charity Shield).

Although it wasn't his first game for the Club, Ian Wright scored a hat-trick on his first league start for Arsenal. His three debut goals helped Arsenal beat Southampton 4-0 at The Dell on September 28, 1991.

You can see the full list below.
