VIDEO : Nottingham Forest 0 – 4 Arsenal [Capital One Cup] Highlights 2016/17

Nottingham Forest 0 – 4 Arsenal [Capital One Cup] Highlights 2016/17 – The new signing scored twice, with Granit Xhaka and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also on target, as Arsene Wenger’s side progressed comfortably at the City Ground

Lucas Perez scored a second-half double as Arsenal ran-out 4-0 winners over Nottingham Forest in the third round of the EFL Cup.

Former Deportivo la Coruna forward Perez, signed for a reported £17 million in August, netted his maiden goal for Arsene Wenger’s side with a coolly despatched penalty on the hour-mark, before doubling his tally with a superb solo effort.

In the first meeting between the two sides since 1999, Granit Xhaka’s second goal in as many games – a blistering strike from 25 yards out – opened the scoring midway through a tightly-contested first-half at the City Ground.

On the 12th anniversary of Brian Clough’s death, Philippe Montanier’s side looked to respond after the interval, but any hopes of a comeback were all-but ended when Perez converted after Michael Mancienne brought down Chuba Akpom in the area.

And Perez swiftly followed up his maiden strike to ensure that Arsenal progressed to the fourth round in comfortable fashion, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completing the win in stoppage time.

Forest could have had the lead early on, former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner – on his full debut – teeing up Patjim Kasami, but the ex-Fulham midfielder could only drag his shot off target.

The City Ground paid homage to Forest legend Clough with a round of applause in the 12th minute, with Arsenal mustering their first chance a moment later, Vladimir Stojkovic saving well from Akpom’s strike.
