  Santi Cazorla (34’)
  Santi Cazorla (60’)
  Theo Walcott (80’)

While not the 12 goal fireworks show of their earlier match-up, 7 goals were shared between the two clubs. Santi Cazorla netted himself a hat trick, including 2 goals within 3 minutes. Reading’s two goals from Adam Le Fondre and Jimmy Kebe were due to poor Arsenal defending, but this was far from enough to help a flailing Reading side.

Arsenal ran rampant throughout the match and were in complete control. They could have easily had 5 or 6 by the first half. Theo Walcott was able to make the score sheet as a striker since he was up front tonight in place of injured Olivier Giroud.

Reading’s defensive woes continue to be a problem and they seem doomed to relegation this season. I would say that they came up a little too soon and should probably save their money in January and just prepare for the drop.
