Theo Walcott spoke after Arsenal’s 4-1 win against Hull in the Premier League and praised the whole team’s performance.

The forward, who managed to score in the second half and generally had a pretty solid match, made it clear that the players were aware of the Hull fans getting on their backs. The Gunners were given a penalty in the first half, which Alexis missed anyway, but the home fans weren’t too pleased and ever since that moment, the roar inside the stadium grew.

It can be an imposing place for visiting teams to come and quietening down the rowdy home support can take the sting out of their tail a little.

Thankfully, despite Hull clawing a goal back, also through a spot kick, we managed to win 4-1 and therefore put the tie completely to bed.

Although it was a little less straight forward than the scoreline suggests, it was a moderately comfortable win with Alexis scoring two, Walcott scoring one and Granit Xhaka netting a long-range screamer in the final seconds.

Walcott also took to Twitter after the match to share a picture of his celebration after scoring his goal.

Nice one, Theo.
