London, Feb 4: Robin van Persie scored a hat trick Saturday to overtake Dennis Bergkamp on Arsenal's all-time scorers list and lead his club to its biggest win of the season, 7-1 over Blackburn.


Van Persie took sole possession of 10th place on the all-time list with Arsenal's second-minute opener and hit an almost identical goal for 2-1 in the 38th.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored his first league goal before struggling Blackburn was reduced to 10 men just before halftime when Gael Givet was sent off for a two-footed foul on Van Persie.

Mikel Arteta added a fourth goal, Oxlade-Chamberlain struck a fifth, Van Persie completed his hat trick with an unmarked finish in the 62nd and substitute Thierry Henry scored in injury time.

Van Persie now has 123 goals for Arsenal.
