Emirates Stadium

Gabriel Martinelli scored two goals and set up another as a Arsenal side turned to the style to thrash Standard Liege 4-0 within their Europa League Group F meeting.
Teenager Martinelli, a #6m signing from Brazilian side Ituano during the summertime, opened the scoring with a great header after 13 minutes and netted his second with a low, curling end just three minutes later, making it four objectives from two matches following his dual against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Joe Willock struck Arsenals third goal (22) following a shot against fellow academy graduate Reiss Nelson diverted into his path inside the normal Liege box, together with Dani Ceballos completing the scoring in the second half, poking Martinellis deft cross over the line to get his first goal for the club (57).
The side of unai Emery overlooked a set of opportunities to extend their lead in the closing stages, however, the success is another step towards the Europa League knockout stages subsequent to the 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in their opening group match.
