Theo Walcott: Arsenal can win the Premier League this season, belief is key

Arsenal striker Theo Walcott’s confidence is sky-high at present after a run of good form for both club and country and the England international is of the belief that his Gunners side can challenge for the Premier League title this season according to Goal.com.

26-year-old Emirates Stadium star Walcott has forced Olivier Giroud out of Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven of late, scoring four in his last seven appearances for Arsenal, and has also scored in recent Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia.

On Arsenal’s hopes of ending a lengthy domestic title drought Walcott stated;

“It could be our year this year but we need to focus on not looking too far ahead – that is important.

“The sense in the dressing room at this moment in time, the players that are in there believe we need to be doing better, we have got the talent it is just, at times, the work ethic may not be there.

“You can sense from the Manchester United game that if we continue to play like that we can beat anyone, we really can.

“Each individual player, when you look at our opposition, we are better than anyone, it is just believing in that and getting that belief in the team.

“[Belief] is definitely showing in patches but, more so in the Premier League, it is becoming a regular occurrence.

“We just need to continue that belief. At times, that belief has not been there and, sensing it now, it is probably the strongest it has ever been since I have been at the club and that is good sign.” Walcott added.
