Theo Walcott is certainly enjoying his best season as an Arsenal player, and he has revealed that the whole team is in a great mood after coming through two tough games against Stoke and Sunderland. The belief and confidence is high and Theo is sure that the Gunners will ensure an amazing 16th year of qualification for the Champions league.
23-year old Walcott has already surpassed his previous best totals, with almost a third of the season left. His 18 goals and 12 assists make him Arsenal’s most dangerous attacking player and put him right up alongside the best players in the Premier league. Since renewing his contract, Walcott has bagged four goals in six games, although he is the first to acknowledge that Arsenal are all about the team.
“The three points have put us on a high and we’ve got a nice week now without a midweek game.
“We’re very confident. We can battle through any sort of situation. The teams around us are winning as well, but we’ve just got to make sure we look after ourselves and try to win as often as we can.
“We’ll see where we are at the end of the season, but we’ve got to show the belief we did at Sunderland. I felt there were a lot of winners in that dressing room and the boys were fantastic.”
Arsenal need to keep that confidence going and build on it, and Theo suggests that it might be better not to rest many top players against Blackburn on Saturday.
“A lot of players are back from international duty and need a bit of a break. Some may be rested for the FA cup game, but that’s just as important as we want to go as far as we can in that competition.”
Wenger has some tough decisions to make this week, but that’s why he is the boss. I just hope that injuries do not have too much of an influence on the coming games.
