Fabregas inspires Arsenal to romp

Published Add your comment

Cesc Fabregas produced a virtuoso display as Arsenal hammered Blackburn 6-2 at Emirates Stadium, where Theo Walcott marked his return from injury with a late goal.

Steven Nzonzi had nodded Rovers ahead in the fourth minute before Thomas Vermaelen smashed home an equaliser.

David Dunn's deflected effort put the visitors back in front, but Robin van Persie and Andrey Arshavin saw Arsenal lead 3-2 at the break.

Captain Fabregas got the goal his performance deserved just before the hour, and then helped set up substitute Walcott on 75 minutes with Nicklas Bendtner cracking in a sixth late on.
