Theo Walcott is a decent footballer in his own right but he has never managed to take that next step and create his own legacy other than just being that very fast player.
When it comes to key Arsenal figures, it hard to deny that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are the most influential and crucial performers for the English Premier League outfit. Continue Reading →

Comments Off on Walcott Keen to See Arsenal Return to Form
Arsenal winger Theo Walcott says that his teammates are very keen on returning back to the form when the club takes on Watford this weekend.
The game is an ideal opportunity for Arsenal to get the first win of the season. After an opening day loss against Liverpool, the gunners could only manage a 0-0 draw with Leicester City last weekend. Manager Arsene Wenger claimed that his team were now starting
to get back to their best after this poor start. His assertion will be proved only if the team gets a proper result against Watford.
Even though Walter Mazzarri’s team are also without a win this season, they have had come very close to getting positive results in both their games. They will be a formidable opposition for the gunners with their 3-5-2 formation. On paper, the next three games look winnable for Arsenal since they are up against Watford, Southampton, and Hull City. In fact, out of the next five matches, only the home match against Chelsea looks extremely tough. Pointing out this fact, Walcott says that it is imperative that Arsenal make the most out of the next five games. The England international also claimed that most of the Arsenal players were happy with the solitary point against Leicester last week.
