Theo Walcott plundered a well-taken double as Arsenal powered their way into the Carling Cup quarter-finals with a 4-0 win over Newcastle.

Walcott's controversial 53rd-minute strike, when defender Mike Williamson appeared to be blocked by Nicklas Bendtner, made it 2-0 after Tim Krul's own goal in first-half injury time.

However, there was no fortune about Bendtner's 83rd-minute strike and Walcott's second with two minutes remaining as the Gunners powered their way into the last eight.
