Theo Walcott has only been back from injury for five minutes, yet he’s already scaring the life out of opposition defences.
The forward scored the first goal in our 2-1 win over Man City in the Premier League and it was clear from the look on his face how much that goal meant.
Before the goal, Theo looked like a constant threat. His runs off the ball and the way he linked up with Ozil was so exciting to watch and it was obvious something special could happen. When he eventually scored, the goal itself was stunning.
Even after he found the net, the forward continued to be a thorn in City’s side. His movement is fantastic and when he combines this with his speed, he’s almost unplayable.
After the match, Arsene Wenger praised the England international, saying, “One of his strengths is the quality of his movement – it is exceptional. It was a strong fighting performance.”
It’s true. After he sustained an injury in the Capital One Cup against Sheffield Wednesday, I was anxious Theo would take a couple of steps back in terms of all the progress he’s made this season but it appears that he’s just picked up where he left off.
