Arsenal returned to action for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Premier League to be put on hold, hammering Charlton Athletic 6-0 in a friendly played on Saturday at an empty Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the Gunners a two-goal lead before half time.

Eddie Nketiah netted a second-half hat-trick, while Joe Willock also got on the scoresheet.

Premier League clubs have been given the all-clear to play friendlies ahead of the scheduled restart on June 17.
