The England international opened the scoring in the
club's 2-0 win over Stoke City at the Emirates
Stadium on Saturday and has been backed to hit the
goal trail by his manager.

Arsene Wenger hailed Theo Walcott after the
Arsenal forward scored in the club’s 2-0 win over
Stoke City on Saturday.

The England international staked a significant claim
to start at centre-forward in future at the Emirates,
as he opened the scoring with a cool finish against
Mark Hughes’ men.

And Wenger has backed the 26-year-old to become
a clinical centre-forward throughout the 2015-16

"Theo Walcott scored a great goal. It required
technical ability to finish. He can become a prolific
goalscorer,” he told reporters.

"We created chances from the first to the last
minute. We have stabilised our defensive record.
This is good for our future.

Wenger also praised his defensive players for their
performances against Stoke, and brushed aside
questions of the upcoming trip to Chelsea, with
Arsenal set to face Dinamo Zagreb in the
Champions League first.

"Koscielny and Coquelin were outstanding. Gabriel
had a very good game as well,” he added.
"We are looking to play well in Zagreb. We will then
see what to do against Chelsea."
