Alex Iwobi was among the goal scorers as Arsenal pumped in five goals past Benfica in their opening match of the Emirates Cup on Saturday.

Iwobi was very effective for the Gunners as they won that tie 5-2.

Theo Walcott grabbed a first-half brace while Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi also got their names on the scoresheet.

Though Salvio and Franco Cervi got on the scoresheet for Benfica, it was far from being enough to have any effect on the outcome of Saturday’s game.

With one point for every goal scored, Arsenal lead the Emirates Cup table on eight points ahead of Sevilla. Both sides meet on Sunday in the final game of the competition.
