Gabriel Martinelli scored two goals and set up another as a Arsenal side turned 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, opened the scoring with a great header after 13 minutes and then netted his second having a low, curling finish only three minutes after, making it four goals from two matches following his double against Nottingham Forest at the Carabao Cup.
Joe Willock struck Arsenals third goal (22) following a shot against fellow academy graduate Reiss Nelson diverted into his path within 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 but the victory is another step towards the Europa League knockout stages following the 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in their opening group match.
