Arsenal boss Unai Emery was pleased with ‘a lot of positive things’ as the Gunners brushed aside Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Carabao Cup at the Emirates on Tuesday night, thumping the Championship side 5-0.

A brace from Gabriel Martinelli and goals from Rob Holding, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson secured a convincing win for Arsenal, while the return from injury of Holding, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney made for a feel-good evening in north London.

Emery took plenty of positives from the game, saying: "The competition is important for us, it's one title and it's one opportunity for different players to take confidence, to take minutes and be helping us like tonight.

"I think this was a good match, a good result, a good game and with a clean sheet there are a lot of positive things.

"We can be positive with different options for the next matches."
