In the 17th minute of tonight’s Premier League tie against Southampton, Arsenal have found themselves behind early on thanks to a former star.
Jannik Vestergaard drilled a tidy pass into the halfway line, with Che Adams effortlessly spinning away from Arsenal centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes before playing the ball through to Theo Walcott.
Walcott’s positioning landing him perfectly in between Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka, the former England international – who is loan from Everton – composed himself before lobbing the ball into the net.
Walcott’s finish was ice-cold but the surprising moment came as he celebrated at the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium – which was his home for 12 years.
