Ozil and Jay-Jay Okocha's nephew react on Twitter to Arsenal's 6-0 win

Ozil Throw

The Gunners duo were naturally delighted after their side's thrashing of Lyon.

Arsenal's Emirates Cup tradition is often a misrepresentation of what things will be like ahead of next season. Indeed, last year Yaya Sanogo scored four goals against Benfica. He didn't score that many for the rest of the campaign.

But a 6-0 win against a side like Lyon - just what the Gunners managed on Saturday afternoon - is nothing to sniff at, even if it was just a pre-season friendly. Arsenal's dominant win against Benfica this time last season didn't even reach the heights of the Lyon win and it was a special day for one Gunner in particular.

Indeed, young Alex Iwobi netted his first Arsenal goal and was delighted on Twitter after the game, declaring that his confidence is currently sky high. The 19-year-old, who is Jay-Jay Okocha's nephew, was one of several goalscorers on Saturday. Could there be more to come from him at the Emirates or is he this term's Sanogo?

Meanwhile, German playmaker Mesut Ozil also posted a cheeky message on Twitter and looks as though he is ready to deliver ahead of the coming season in north London. Can the 26-year-old stay injury free?
