Theo Walcott says that he’s happy he’s combining well with Alexis Sanchez and Hector Bellerin, but has praised the team for allowing him to flourish this season.
The 27 year old was man of the match as the Gunners beat Basel 2-0 last night, and both his goals were created by the Chilean. He also worked well with the Spanish full-back, something which hasn’t always been the case, and he’s keen to keep this form going.
Asked about his connection with Sanchez, he said, “It’s getting a good sort of partnership there, but it’s not just that, the whole team seems to be clicking. Me and Hector have got a good relationship on that right-hand side, it’s quite a pacy right-hand side.
“That combination between me and Alexis, it’s boding well but it’s obviously still very early into the season, so hopefully we can all stay fit and it’s going to be a good run.
“The combinations between me and him are very positive at this moment in time. We seem to sort of know when we play off each other quite well. If he comes short, I go long and we’ve just got a good sort of combinations.
“The whole team has tended to play very well together, and when we lose the ball everyone tries to be first to get it back. That starts from Alexis at the top and he sets the pace for us all, and it seems to be clicking at this moment in time.”
Alexis has 5 goals and 5 assists to his name this season, while Walcott’s 5 goals are just reward for his improvement this season. Fingers crossed they keep it up.
