WATCH: Holding scores stunning own goal as Arsenal thrash MK Dons

Arsenal have claimed a 4-1 friendly win over MK Dons ahead of this weekend's Community Shield.

The Gunners took an early through Mohamed Elneny, who has just returned from a loan spell with Besiktas.

Eddie Nketiah then doubled the lead after 10 minutes of play, before a comical own goal from Rob Holding brought MK Dons back into the game.

The defender threw himself out at an incoming cross and connected with a perfect diving header, which looped over goalkeeper Bernd Leno and into the back of the net.

But youngster Mark McGuiness made sure of the result after 76 minutes of play.

Reiss Nelson made it 4-1 shortly after, the result giving Mikel Arteta's side some much needed confidence before facing Liverpool on Saturday.
