Arsenal finally got their season running with a 6-0 demolition of Championship side West Brom. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored a hattrick in one of the emphatic football results of the second round of the Carabao Cup. Arsenal began their season with losses to newly-promoted Brentford and Champions League winners Chelsea. They will take on Premier League champions Manchester City in their next game. The gunners have set up a third-round clash against Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup.
Aubameyang tested positive for Covid before the start of the season and missed the opening game as well as the match against Chelsea. His first two goals were the easiest he will ever score but a spectacular third earned him the match ball. Nicholas Pepe, Bukayo Saka, and Alexander Lacazette completed the scoring for the arsenal.
“It’s always a tough place to come here midweek. They made some changes to keep the clean sheet and with the attitude the team had, overall I’m very happy. We’re really disappointed we haven’t won yet in the Premier League, but the players are together.” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said. “When you lose the most important thing is to win the next match as quickly as possible, score some good goals and get some confidence, and get a clean sheet. There were players that needed goals and minutes, so in general, it was a very positive night.”
“Aubameyang looked sharp. Physically he’s not at his best but he looked good tonight. He can play outside, inside. It depends on the plan of the game and who we have available. Martin gives us something different and Ramsdale looked very comfortable.” he added.
