Santi Cazorla was up to his old tricks this afternoon as Arsenal hammered a dismal Lyon side 6-0 in the Emirates Cup.
The Spaniard blasted a low free-kick beyond the French side’s keeper to complete the rout and put the icing on the cake for Arsene Wenger’s men.
The Gunners did their title credentials no harm at all by battering Lyon with four goals in just nine first-half minutes.
Youth team player Alex Iwobi – nephew of former Bolton favourite Jay-Jay Okocha – scored his first senior goal for Arsenal to open the scoring before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Oliver Giroud got in on the act in front of a drooling home support.
But it was diminutive midfielder Cazorla’s delicious set piece which will live long in the memory. What a strike!
