Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sent Arsenal through to the EFL Cup quarter-finals with both goals in a 2-0 win for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.
The English winger produced a neat bottom-corner finish for his first goal, scored in the 32nd minute.
He then doubled his - and Arsenal’s - tally in the 78th minute with a deflected effort from the edge of the penalty area.
This was Oxlade-Chamberlain’s second and third goals in his last three appearances for the north London outfit.
The 23-year-old also scored against Ludogorets in the Champions League last week. Prior to that, he scored against Nottingham Forest in the previous round of the EFL Cup, and against Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season.
According to Opta - and this really is a remarkable statistic - Oxlade-Chamberlain, with five goals, has recorded a new best tally for goals in a single season for Arsenal.
Incredibly, the England international has never scored more than four goals in a campaign before.
