EPL ; Arsenal beat Blackburn Rovers 7-1, with the OX showing his huge potential

Seven goals for Arsenal today, RvP scores a hat-trick, The Ox grabs two goals, Arteta gets one, and Thierry Henry scores in the final minute of his last game at the Emirates for Arsenal ... just magic !!

Arsenal took an early lead through Robin Van Persie's tap-in but Morten Gamst Pedersen's free-kick levelled it for Blackburn Rovers on the half-hour.

Van Persie's side-foot and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's strike made it 3-1 before Blackburn's Gael Givet was sent off. Mikel Arteta struck from 18 yards for 4-1 before Oxlade-Chamberlain, Van Persie and Thierry Henry completed the rout in the last minute.

After the game Arsene Wenger commented on how quickly "The Ox" seems to have matured as a player - he's still just 18 years old - and you can see from this interview below that the lad has got his head right in the game with a top attitude.

AC Milan up next at the San Siro ... how hard can that be?
