Walcott began the new Premier League campaign in the starting XI at Southampton under the aforementioned Hassenhuttl but he has since drop out of the starting line-up. He was on the pitch for 80 minutes as former team Everton came from behind to beat Southampton 3-1 at home in the opening Premier League game for the Saints this season.
