Arsenal demolished National League side Boreham Wood in Unai Emery’s first pre-season match as boss of the North London giants.

Emery’s Emirates revolution got off to the perfect start with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing a 17-miunute treble in Herts sun.

Talented starlet Reiss Nelson made it 4-0 with a thumping half volley as the strong Gunners side dominated Luke Garrard’s side.

The Gunners made it five after Alexandre Lacazette opened his account for the summer after slotting low into the far corner with six minutes to go until the break.

Emery made a raft of changes during the break as Lucas Perez came on for Aubameyang.

Rob Holding came on for Sokratis. Carl Jenkinson replaced Hector Bellerin.

Calum Chambers, who signed a new contract, was brought on for Ainsley Maitland-Niles while Jordi Osei-Tutu made way for Sead Kolasinac.

Other changes included Skhodran Mustafi replacing Tino Mavropanos as Jell Reine-Adelaide came on for Alexandre Lacazette.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan came on for Nelson while Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey replaced Joe Willock.

Starlet Eddie Nketiah replaced the highly-rated Emile-Smith Rowe – with the 19-year-old making it 6-0 eight minutes after the break.

Reine-Adelaide made it 7-0 as the Gunners coasted to victory before Nketiah assisted Mkhitaryan with a cheeky backheel as the Armenian made it 8-0 to Emery’s Arsenal.
