New Arsenal under-23s head coach Freddie Ljungberg enjoyed a relaxed start to life on a Gunners touchline with a 3-0 victory over Bostik Premier Division side Hornchurch on Wednesday night.

There was an appearance for Joe Willock, who featured on the first team’s Singapore tour. Plus highly rated Polish youngster Krystian Bielik came on as sub.

The Arsenal goals came from Charlie Gilmour, who volleyed in from inside the area, and Tyreece John-Jules, with 15 minutes left. A third was bundled in from a corner late on.

Ljungberg cut a relaxed figure in the technical area, signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans after the game.
