Arsenal Beat Sevilla 6-0 To Win The Emirates Cup

Gabriel Jesus scored a hat-trick on his first appearance at Emirates Stadium as Arsenal beat Sevilla 6-0 in the Emirates Cup. Bukayo Saka struck twice, with the Gunners 4-0 up inside 19 minutes against the La Liga side. Eddie Nketiah rounded off the win after a flowing counter-attack move. Arsenal’s¬†victory over Sevilla ends a successful pre-season campaign, during which Brazilian Jesus scored seven goals after his¬†¬£45m move from Manchester City.

It was Saka who opened the scoring from the penalty spot after he was brought down in the area, before Jesus doubled the hosts’ lead, firing home Granit Xhaka’s low cross. He added a third just two minutes later, and Saka matched him before the 20-minute mark, pressing high and finishing well. Xhaka went close to a fifth before Jesus grabbed his third from close range. Nketiah completed the scoring a minute from time.

Crystal Palace, who secured a 4-2 win over Montpellier with Wilfried Zaha, Odsonne Edouard – who scored two – and Marc Guehi getting the goals for Patrick Vieira’s side, are the season openers for Arsenal next week. The Gunners will visit Palace on Friday night to see if their pre-season form can continue into the season proper.
