Arsenal Clinched 4-0 Victory over Blackburn with Emmanuel Adebayor Scoring Hat-trick and Walcott Dazzling

Arsenal appeared with impeccable form against Blackburn Rovers tonight as they thrashed the home side 4-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Arsenal’s Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor. However, Theo Walcott was instrumental in Arsenal’s superb display at Ewood Park tonight. The hero of England’s midweek victory over Croatia in world cup qualifying set up Robin van Persie the opening goal of Arsenal on the 8th minute of the match. Though he did not score any goal himself, Walcott remained a constant threat to Blackburn defense all through the match.

The Togolese striker was also in his prime to pulled off an excellent hat-trick, helping Arsenal pick up three points from the match with full of confidence. Arsenal lost to Fulham in their first away match of the season. So, ahead of the away match at Blackburn, Arsenal was a bit careful this time. Particularly, Arsenal’s midfield and front men were in superb form, but their defense was not up to the mark. Blackburn’s Roque Santa Cruz created a couple of chances following van Persie’s early strike and Blackburn looked very confident even under a goal down in the match. The home team’s Emerton also created some chances, but Blackburn Rovers failed to capitalize on the chances and thus let Arsenal create pressure on Blackburn Rovers.

Arsenal looked more dangerous in the second half and kept on attacking. With this victory, Arsenal moved up to third place with 9 points from three matches. The most important thing is that clinching a 4-0 away victory is always something special; no matter who the opponents are. Now, let us see if Arsene Wenger boys can continue their excellent form in the coming weeks as well.
