Walcott scores 3, Arsenal beats West Brom 4-1

LONDON (AP) -- Theo Walcott scored a first-half hat trick on a rare start for the England winger as Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion 4-1 to secure third place in the Premier League and a direct berth in the Champions League group stage.

Walcott stated a case for inclusion in next weekend's FA Cup final against Aston Villa by netting in the fourth, 14th and 37th minutes. Jack Wilshere also scored in the first half to give Arsenal a 4-0 lead at the break.

Gareth McAuley headed in a consolation for West Brom in the 57th minute at Etihad Stadium.
