Gunners shoot down Wanderers

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie scored his 100th Arsenal goal as the Gunners put their recent troubles behind them with a comfortable 3-0 victory over 10-man Bolton at the Emirates Stadium.

After a drab first half display the Gunners sprung in to life in the second half and opened the scoring when Van Persie beat Jussi Jaaskelainen at his near post just 40 seconds after the break.

David Wheater then saw red for pulling back Theo Walcott when he was through on goal before Van Persie brought up his ton with a clever flick and Alex Song struck near the death to complete the morale-boosting win.
