Theo Walcott led slip his hidden personality tonight, not just in the two goals, but having a little swear on BT Sport.
Speaking after the 2-0 win in which he scored both goals and played excellently, the 27 year old praised the defence for keeping the team’s third clean sheet in a row.
“We were very professional today,” he said. “The intensity was there from the start, it died off towards the end but you can understand that.
“But again, clean sheets. We’ve always said that if we keep clean sheets – this guy standing next me [Koscielny] and his new partner – shit was just incredible.
“It just shows how far we have come, it can’t stop now. This game’s going to be forgotten about now, and we know we need to move on now to Sunday.”
Touching on his own form so far this season, he said he’s enjoying himself, as you’d expect, scoring goals and making chances.
“I am working hard, enjoying my football. I just try to improve everyday. Things are going well but this will all be forgotten about really, it is all about the next day.
“We cannot get ahead of ourselves, we have a lot to do and hopefully the past can change. We have so much experience in the Champions League realise how important that top spot is.”
