The Arsenal midfielder Theo Walcott has said that he is extremely excited at the prospect of playing against the European Champions Chelsea and Ashley Cole. Arsenal will be welcoming the European Champions Chelsea at the Emirates stadium during the weekend, followed by a visit from Manchester City (where we’ll fight for bragging rights with the chaps at Man City Football News!)
This is the biggest match of the season for Chelsea so far. Hence, they will be certainly excited at the prospect of taking three points that will once again reassert their position at the top of the table. The 23-year-old Theo Walcott has been linked with Chelsea amongst other clubs in the last few weeks.
He is out of contract at the end of this season and there has been no progress in the contract talks so far. He has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the last few weeks, while other clubs like Liverpool and City have also shown interest in signing the player. Theo Walcott has said in the last few weeks that he would like to stay at Arsenal. However, it is dependent upon the possibility of him being selected as the main striker rather than a winger. The player recently scored two goals in the league cup match against Coventry City.
“I don’t mind scoring against Chelsea. I’ve done well against them – they must probably hate me, to be honest. I don’t mind playing against Ashley either. I like playing against him. He is one of the best left-backs in the world and we have some very good battles against each other – in training as well for England. Maybe in the past few years I have had the edge on him. So I am sure when he sees all this he will be frustrated and he will probably want to kick the hell out of me, which is fine!” said Theo Walcott.
