Theo Walcott, centre, scores Arsenal's sixth to round off his hat-trick

Theo Walcott led a stunning comeback by Arsenal to beat Reading 7-5 in a night of high drama at Madejski Stadium.

Gunners outcast Marouane Chamakh, making his first start since January, appeared to have secured victory with a fine strike in the 13th minute of extra-time.

With three minutes remaining Reading substitute Pavel Pogrebnyak equalised and it took Walcott's late goal and a second from Chamakh to end a thrilling tie.
