Southampton 0-5 Arsenal

Theo Walcott hit a hat-trick and Danny Welbeck scored twice as we cruised into the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.
Welbeck, making his first start since last May, set the tone with a delightful finish from Lucas’ pass. He doubled his tally with a deft first touch and a low shot into the corner.
Walcott made it three from Welbeck’s cut-back and then rounded off a splendid move with a first-time finish from Alexis’ pass. The Chilean set up his third too after a lung-busting run from the former Saint.
The goalscorers will grab the headlines but this was a tremendous team display, peppered with fine performances. Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Ainsley Maitland-Niles got a chance in midfield - and took it with aplomb.
After a run of last-gasp goals, a flurry of early goals made this a much more relaxing experience for Arsène Wenger and a large travelling contingent.
We’re into the last 16 for the seventh straight year - and in fine fettle ahead of a huge week in the Premier League.
