Substitute Emmanuel Adebayor struck a second-half hat-trick as Arsenal ran out 6-2 winners against Derby at Pride Park.

The Gunners, 5-0 victors at the Emirates earlier in the season, were fortunate to lead 2-1 at the break after goals from Nicklas Bendtner and Robin Van Persie either side of a Jay McEveley effort.

But the second half belonged to the Togo international who struck three times to take his season´s tally to 30 - which include three in September´s clash between the teams in north London.
