Arsenal's XI from Carl Jenkinson's Premier League debut - where are they now?

Carl Jenkinson, remember him?

It's hard to believe the 27-year-old is still at Arsenal, who signed him for £1m in 2011 while Arsene Wenger was manager.

Wenger clearly saw something in Jenkinson at Charlton, but he hasn't really done much in his eight years at the Emirates Stadium.

Eighty-four appearances, an England debut and three unsuccessful loan spells with West Ham (x2) and Birmingham City is all the right-back really has to show.

Jenkinson should have left Arsenal a long time ago, but he didn't, so he currently finds himself out of favour and playing for the Gunners' Academy.

He started for Freddie Ljungberg's Arsenal Under-23s against Chelsea Under-23s on Monday night and scored a goal as they won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Things haven't quite gone to plan for the Englishman - he should be playing regular first-team football at 27 - and it's about time he moved on.

Which got us thinking - where did Jenkinson's teammates end up from his Premier League debut against Liverpool in 2011?

Arsenal lost 2-0 that day and apart from Jenkinson, Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey, every player in the starting XI ended up leaving at some point.
