Aubameyang bags hat-trick as Arsenal rout West Brom 6-0

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped himself to a hat-trick as Arsenal thrashed a much-changed West Brom side 6-0 to book their place in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

With Mikel Arteta’s side without a win or goal this season, the under pressure Spaniard decided to name a very strong side, with Bukayo Saka, Martin Ødegaard and Aubameyang all in the XI.

The gulf in class was evident all through as they produced a devastating attacking display to destroy the Baggies.

Saka wriggled past a few challenges before firing at goal, with Alex Palmer only able to push out to Aubameyang who tapped in from close range.

The Gabon striker was the provider as the Gunners doubled their lead in the 45th minute, pouncing on a rebound after Nicolas Pepe’s shot came back off the post to set the Ivorian for a simple finish.

Saka evaded the Baggies’ press and his through ball put Aubameyang on goal for his second goal.

Arsenal would wait just five minutes before getting a fourth, with Saka and Ødegaard combining brilliantly again.

After surging forward, Saka played into the feet of the Norwegian who returned the ball with a classy flick to set the wide man in on goal and he struck powerfully past Palmer.

Aubameyang would get his hat-trick and Arsenal’s fifth, with his best goal of the night, as he cut in from the left after a pass from former Baggies loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who came on as a sub, before curling beautifully into the top corner.

Substitute Alexandre Lacazette replaced Granit Xhaka in the 67th minute, and added the sixth goal with  a cool finish from Pepe’s pull-back.
