The club has after immense request from the fans released footage of the best moments of the game which saw Arsenal win 6-0 thanks to goals from Eddie Nketiah (Hatrick), Aubameyang, Lacazette and Willock. You can see that the players were glad to have played against a team after a very long time.
ARSENAL 6-0 CHARLTON ATHLETIC HIGHLIGHTS
Arsenal fans will be glad that Eddie Nketiah was able to bag in three goals because that will boost his confidence ahead of the upcoming Premier League games and Mikel Arteta has already shown that he fully trusts the 21 year old striker who got recalled from loan in the January transfer window.
Aubameyang scoring is really just no news but you can see the happiness of Lacazette when finding the back of the net with such ease as it reflects how playing with no pressure from the stands could be able to make him go back to his old form and the gunners will definitely need everyone at their best to make a proper fight for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
