After some iffy displays this season, it was Arsenal’s young guns who turned on the style at last, running out 5-0 winners over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup this evening.
Gabriel Martinelli scored twice; Reiss Nelson got his first ever Arsenal goal; Rob Holding scored on his comeback after 10 months out; Hector Bellerin got an assist in his first game since January; and Joe Willock grabbed another goal on top of an impressive midfield display. Not to mention a super debut from £25m signing Kieran Tierney.
It was fun. The only negative was an injury to Emile Smith Rowe but hopefully he’ll be ok.
