Theo Walcott grabbed a hat-trick as Arsenal beat Newcastle in a 10-goal epic that sent them to fifth in the Premier League.

Arsenal led three times through goals from Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski, but were pegged back on each occasion by Demba Ba (2) and Sylvain Marveaux.

But Walcott completed his hat-trick and substitute Olivier Giroud got a quickfire double to seal the win.

"I thought when we got back to 3-3 we should have shut up shop," the Newcastle boss said.

"The last 15-20 minutes was a fresh team against a tired team and perhaps a bit of inexperience on our bench resulted in the scoreline.

"We're just so disappointed that we didn't get something out of it before then.

"The goals we conceded before then were not, not good and that's been our problem.

"For 70 minutes it was pretty tight, I thought we were giving a good account of ourselves but their freshness and the brightness towards the end of the game was just too much for us and we couldn't cope."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
