Britain Soccer Emirates Cup

Arsenal have just bowled over a largely listless Benfica side to get themselves off to a corking start in the two-day, four-club pre-season jolly known as the Emirates Cup, with Yaya Sanogo helping himself to four goals despite not managing to score a single competitive goal for the Gunners before this afternoon.

With Aaron Ramsey, Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin also impressing, Joel Campbell scored the other goal as Arsenal rampaged to victory, racking up a standard three points for the win as well as five bonus points for each goal scored.

1-0 (Sanogo, 26′)…

2-0 (Campbell, 40′)…

3-0 (Sanogo, 44′)…

4-0 (Sanogo hat-trick, 45′)…

5-0 (Sanogo, 49′)…

5-1 (Gaitan, 62′)…

Sanchez coming on for his Arsenal debut…

Fancy footwork from the “unstoppable” Yaya Sanogo…

A timely reminder for Arsenal fans to not get too carried away just yet!

We’re going to chuck in a few photos for you too, just ‘cos we’re feeling generous this afternoon…
