Unai Emery has revealed the advice he gave Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers before Arsenals emphatic Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

The Gunners put five goals past Championship outfit Forest on Tuesday evening to book their place in the fourth round of the competition.

Striker Martinelli scored a brace, while Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and the returning Rob Holding also got on the scoresheet in a convincing 5-0 thrashing.

Brazilian teenager Martinelli produced a particularly impressive performance for the Premier League side and Emery said: He played very well in pre-season.

I spoke with him before and told him to have some patience, to wait for his opportunities. Tonight he did that. He deserved his goals.

He is very humble, he fights, hes hungry to have that opportunity to help us.

Chambers, who spent last season on loan at Fulham, also impressed for Arsenal in his fourth appearance of the season.
