Arsenal kicked off their annual pre-season tournament- Emirate Cup- by trashing Ligue 1 runners up Lyon by 6-0.

The Gunners scored four goals in nine dizzying first-half minutes - from Olivier Giroud, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey.

Mesut Ozil, who had set-up two of those four goals, claimed one of his own in the second half before Santi Cazorla hit a free-kick underneath a leaping Lyon wall to complete the rout.
