Arsenal thrash Southampton 5-0 to progress in the FA Cup [Best Tweets]

Arsene Wenger watched from the director’s box as Arsenal destroyed Southampton 5-0 to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Arsenal manager was serving the first game of his four-match ban having been penalised by the FA for his behaviour during Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Burnley but will have been pleased with what he saw.

Theo Walcott picked up a rare hat-trick and Danny Welbeck – who has only just returned from injury – scored a brace as Arsenal ran riot against the Saints. Southampton were running high on confidence having just knocked Liverpool out of the EFL Cup but could do nothing as Arsenal were on song.

Plenty of people were happy to see Danny Welbeck on the scoresheet as well after the injury-plagued Englishman finally made a return to the side.

There was plenty of talk about Arsene Wenger as well after the Arsenal manager began his four match touchline ban.
