The north London side ran riot against their Norwegian opponents as Arsene Wenger’s men secured a thumping 8-0 win.

Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi all scored, with a Michael Haukas own-goal and Joel Campbell’s double capping an impressive performance.

Alex Iwobi’s double and Chuba Akpom’s goal added further gloss to the scoreline.

Neither Sanchez nor Xhaka were included in the squad for the friendly clash but the pair looked to be entertained along with the likes of Aaron Ramsey on the sidelines.

Here are some of the best pictures from the game as the second half unfolded.
