|Santi Cazorla was the star of the show as he set up all 4 of Arsenal's goals|
It had been all Arsenal right up until the break when Shaun Maloney, the visitors star player this season, bent home a curling free-kick to go in at half time all level.
Just after the hour mark Arsenal were back in front though as Cazorla's ball across goal found Walcott who got there ahead of Joel to find the net.
Minutes later the Gunners had a third and Podolski had his second. It was more poor defending as Scharner played Podolski onside and he managed to loft the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
The rout was then completed as Aaron Ramsey grabbed his first Premier League goal of the season. Cazorla found the Welshman who then raced clear before burying his shot from a tight angle.
The final score finished Arsenal 4-1 Wigan.
