Arsenal are through to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup after a Gilles Sunu hat-trick saw off Wolves, 3-1, on Tuesday evening.

The French youngster was called from the bench after just half an hour of the fourth round tie at Underhill when striker Rhys Purphy was stretchered off - and quickly put his side ahead with a fierce drive from an Henri Lansbury corner.

Lansbury set up his second after the break and the treble was duly completed when Sunu latched on to Emmanuel Frimpong's pass to make it 3-0. Sami Winnall hit a late consolation for Wanderers.

The Young Guns take on Sunderland in the fifth round.
