Arsenal 4-0 Standard Liege: Gabriel Martinelli scores twice in rout

Arsenal vs S Liege
Europa League Group F
8:00pm Thursday 3rd October

Emirates Stadium

Gabriel Martinelli scored just two goals and set up another as a heavily rotated Arsenal side turned on the style to thrash Standard Liege 4-0 within their Europa League Group F assembly in the Emirates Stadium.
Teenager Martinelli, a #6m signing from Brazilian side Ituano through the summertime, started the scoring with a great header after 13 minutes and netted his second using a low, curling end just 3 minutes after, which makes it four objectives from two games following his double against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Joe Willock struck Arsenals third goal (22) after a shot from fellow academy graduate Reiss Nelson redirected into his path inside the normal Liege box, with Dani Ceballos finishing the scoring in the second half, poking Martinellis deft cross on the line to get his first goal for the club (57).
The negative of unai Emery missed a collection of opportunities to extend their lead however, the success is just another step towards the Europa League knockout stages subsequent to the 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in their opening group game.
