Arsenal laid waste to a West Bromwich Albion XI that had six academy players starting for them with a 6-0 trouncing as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his third hat-trick in the Gunners shirt.
Besides the Gabonese’s treble, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, and Alexandre Lacazette also found the back of the net in a much-needed result for manager Mikel Arteta, the players, and the fans alike.
The Gunners will now face Wimbledon at the Emirates in the Carabao Cup 3rd round.
Put some respect on Auba’s name

I don’t know about the rest of you but I needed that win. My health needed that win no matter how small it looks. Nothing beats that feeling that comes with seeing your team win. Thank you @Arsenal.— WelBeast (@WelBeast) August 25, 2021
Leno isn’t bad but…
Leno isn’t as bad as some Arsenal fans make out but it’s nice to have a goalkeeper competent with his feet in Ramsdale— Paddy (@PaddyArsenal) August 25, 2021
Aaron Ramsdale getting all the love

Loved seeing @Auba back on top form, Odegaard was sublime & @BukayoSaka87 superb. BUT…. this was a West Brom kids team, the real test comes on Sunday vs City. We have to turn up. pic.twitter.com/nU9yRcSGiL
