0 Capital one: Arsenal greatest comeback from 4-0 to 7-5 victory against reading

Arsene Wenger hails his team after recover from 4-0 defeat to win 7-5 during extra time in Capital One Cup. Theo Walcot score hat-trick and two from Marouane Chamakh.

It was too painful for Reading as they lost the game despite leading 4-0 just after 35 minutes and scoring 5 goals. Reading was leading 4-2 on 89th minute before two quick goals. Much more painful to reading as they were made to play for 96 minutes instead of 94 and Arsenal equalizer come on 96 minute. Royals was at the brink of first win against Arsenal in 10 encounters.
Arsenal learned from 2011 experience as Newcatle came from behind 4-0 to level the score 4-4. A stunning goal by Cheick Tiote's leveled the score that day. But in this game Arsenal needed and equalizer to keep dreams alive and when they got it at 5-5 it was a matter of killing the game. It was until 121 and 123 minutes when they got the winning goals.

Much respect to Arsenal fans who stayed even at 4-0 and cheer for the team.
