Theo Walcott had a very influential game against Chelsea as we defeated them in an emphatic fashion on Monday night. Walcott got an assist as well as scored the third goal that proved to be important in the end.
Speaking about the match he said that it wasn’t easy at all and it was all down to the whole team getting everything right that got the result. The attitude matters in such games and it was visible that we clearly wanted the win.
Walcott said that it feels nice to be a part of the team as they overcame the Champions by dominating the game for most parts and he further praised the fans for the atmosphere.
In the match with Manu we looked ordinary but against Chelsea we were a changed team as Walcott declared Arsenal’s performance against Chelsea as their best of the season so far.
As for conceding the goal he said that a win matters most. Walcott admits that it might have led the fans to think about the Tottenham outcome but we held on. Had we not missed our chances the scores would have been different and Walcott doesn’t mind it as long as the three points are taken. Walcott just wants that they continue with the winning and increase their points.
And hopefully it will bear some fruit at the end.
“I wouldn’t say it was easy but I thought everyone got their jobs right. It was nice to get a win against a big team and against the champions. It was great to be part of that. It’s a dream really.
You could sense the atmosphere. The fans were right up for it, just like the players were and we just didn’t let Chelsea play.
It was nice to see an Arsenal team actually do everything right and hopefully we’ll just continue to do that.
In the Manchester United defeat [a fortnight earlier] we had spells where we weren’t at our best. But I think this was our best.
When they got their goal our fans might have been thinking ‘here we go, Tottenham all over again’. That scenario, but we managed to hold on and missed loads of chance. It could have been 5-2, 5-3 but a win is a win. We got three points on the board and we just have to keep on clocking them up.”
