Gunners star hails 10-game winning streak away from home.
Arsenal winger Theo Walcott says he is thrilled to be part of the side that has just set a club record of ten straight wins away from home, according to Sky Sports.
The 24-year-old struck a fine opening goal in the Gunners’ 2-1 win against Marseille on Wednesday, giving Arsene Wenger’s side the perfect start to this season’s Champions League, in which they find themselves in a tough group alongside the likes of Napoli and last season’s finalists Borussia Dortmund.
However, Arsenal have started the season in great form, recovering from a surprise defeat at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the campaign to win six games in a row in all competitions.
This current form, particularly away from home, fills Walcott with great confidence that Arsenal can finally end their eight-year wait for silverware, as he predicts the team can only get better once they welcome back so many key players from injury.
“It’s 10 successive wins away from home, a record,” he said. “To be part of a team that has done that, in the amount of years that Arsenal have existed, is a great honour and a great achievement for everyone.
“It just shows how good and how talented these players are.
“We haven’t got the biggest squad in the world and we’ve got a lot of injuries, which doesn’t help. We’ve got to stay fit, we don’t want to lose any more players.
“As soon as the players come back there is going to be more competition for places as well, that’s only going to be a good thing for Arsenal.”
Arsenal’s current run away from home stretches back to the end of last season, where some fine form late on in the year saw them overtake rivals Tottenham to claim fourth spot and qualify for the Champions League.
