Mikel Arteta’s side returned to the top of the Premier League with the victory, which came in easy fashion as the Gunners dismantled the division’s basement side in North London.
Martinelli opened the scoring in the fifth minute, before substitute Reiss Nelson netted a brace in his first appearance of the season to make it 3-0.
Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard then made it 5-0 by 78 minutes, before the YouTube star was left holding his breath for the final period of the game.

He shared a celebration video taken at the full time whistle, where he can be seen hugging the likes of KSI in celebration.
The 33/1 bet triggered hysteria from fans on social media, with one supporter tweeting: ‘LOOOL you’ve got it’.
Another asked: ‘Fancy lending me a fiver?’ as McGinley’s followers congratulated him on his winnings below the celebration video captioned: ‘man like callux the bet king.’
