With Walcott all but settling the contest with a brace inside the first 15 minutes, Jack Wilshere scored a third for the North Londoners on 17 minutes.

Their stunning first-half showing wasn’t completed, however, until 37 minutes, when Walcott completed a delightful hat-trick.

The goal was the England international’s 50th in the Premier League, and his third goal completed his third-ever hat-trick.

The forward’s effort was a simple tap-in at the backpost after a fine cross from Santi Cazorla had split the (admittedly dreadful) Albion defence.

Walcott’s glorious first-half performance has surely made him a shoo-in for the FA Cup final against Aston Villa on Saturday May 30, with Wenger likely to find it hard to resist a player in such scintillating form.

It is by no means certain that the forward will be at the Emirates Stadium next season, having been linked with a move away from Arsenal.
