 Eddie Nketiah struck a hat-trick as Arsenal walloped League One club Sunderland 5-1 at the Emirates on Tuesday to book a place in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The 22-year-old put the Gunners ahead, against the third-tier club, pouncing from close range after Rob Holding’s header from a corner was parried out by Sunderland keeper Lee Burge.

Nicolas Pepe doubled the lead with a deflected shot after good work from Cedric Soares but Sunderland pulled a goal back with a nice finish from Nathan Broadhead, who lifted the ball over the advancing Bernd Leno.

Nketiah restored the two goal advantage, clipping in a low ball from Nuno Tavares in the 49th minute and then produced a cheeky backheel finish to make it 4-1 after Pepe nutmegged Dener Hume and delivered a low cross.

A positive evening for Mikel Arteta’s side was completed when 18-year-old substitute Charlie Patino, making his senior debut, converted another low cross from Pepe.

In the other quarter finals tomorrow, Brentford will host Chelsea, while West Ham will visit Tottenham.

In the third match, Liverpool will host Leicester in Anfield.
