At 11 days of his resumption match against Manchester City, Arsenal largely beat Charlton (6-0), Saturday, in an empty Emirates Stadium.
Mikel Arteta’s men were visibly in legs against the 22nd Championship. Alexandre Lacazette thus opened the scoring, with a powerful strike, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the Gunners’ second goal in the first period.
Eddie Nketiah then offered himself a hat-trick after returning from the locker room, him the young striker (21) who started the last 3 matches ofArsenal in the Premier League before the health crisis at the expense of “Laca”. Joe Willock also made the nets tremble.
Ranked 9th, 8 points behind 4th place, Arsenal will play their late game against Manchester City on June 17 before making two trips to Brighton and Southampton.
