Theo Walcott showed he is learning fast from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as he put up a man of the match performance to secure a 7-3 win over visiting Newcastle United in Saturday’s final EPL fixture.
Walcott scored a hat-trick while Oliver Giroud scored a brace; a goal each from Oxlade Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski made insignificant the brace scored by Senegalese Demba Ba and the other goal bySylvain Marveaux irrelevant.
After being pegged back three times in the thrilling encounter at the Emirates, the Gunners bolted away in the later stages of the second half to record their fourth successive win in the English Premier League.
For Newcastle, scoring three goals at the Emirate like they did at the Old Trafford last weekend and still failing to get any point is not the best way to celebrate the festive period
The win for Arsenal takes them to fifth spot with 33 points while Newcastle are now 15th on the log.
