Goal 28mins – Theo Walcott: Powerful shot from 8 yards.

Goal 30mins – Emmanuel-Thomas: Nice left foot finish into the bottom corner from edge of 6 yard box.

Half-time 2-0 Arsenal. Mannone, Sagna, Clichy, Vela, Eboue, Chamakh on for Almunia, Gibbs, Walcott, Emmanuel-Thomas, Arshavin and Wilshere at half time.

Goal 58mins – Chamakh: Chamakh wins penalty, then gets up to slot home from 18 yards.

Goal 65mins – Vela: Lovely goal from Vela, lobbed the ball over the on-rushing keeper. Typical finish from the Mexican.
