Arsenal returned to action for the first time since the Premier
League was stopped because of the COVID-19 pandemic as they beat
Charlton Athletic 6-0 in a friendly at an empty Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette celebrates after scoring.

Premier League clubs were this week given the all-clear to play
friendlies ahead of the scheduled restart on June 17, following a
three-month stoppage.

Arsenal hosted second-tier Charlton behind closed doors on Sunday (NZ time), with officiating roles carried out by club staff.

Alex Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored before halftime
while academy graduate Eddie Nketiah grabbed a second-half hat-trick.
Joe Willock was also on target.

Arsenal, who are ninth in the standings, are away to Manchester City on June 17.
