The striker put Arsenal ahead within four minutes, firing in Aaron Ramsey’s cut-back, before setting up Ainsley Maitland-Niles before half-time at Emirates Stadium.

He then poked in Sead Kolasinac’s low cross after the break to make it 3-0.

Arsenal will be in the draw for the quarter-finals on Friday at 12:00 GMT.
