WALCOTT DEDICATES ARSENAL'S WIN OVER MAN UTD TO WENGER
The Frenchman was criticised after Tuesday's
defeat to Olympiacos in the Champions League
but the forward insists Sunday's showing "was
the Arsenal of old"
Theo Walcott has dedicated Arsenalâ€™s 3-0
victory over Manchester United to Arsene
Wenger and believes the teamâ€™s performance
was the best heâ€™s ever been involved in.
The Gunners raced into a three-goal lead inside
the opening 20 minutes as Alexis Sanchez
struck twice, while Mesut Ozil netted his
second of the season.
Wenger faced criticism following his side's 3-2
defeat to Olympiacos earlier in the week but
Walcott has described the display against
United as "the Arsenal of old".
â€œYou could sense the desire was there we need
to show that in more games. But our Premier
League record is actually very good,â€ Walcott
told Sky Sports.
â€œEveryone is beating everyone else at the
moment. But weâ€™re where we are want to be
just about but we want to be dominant at home
against big teams and we should be playing like
that every week. There will be a lot of aching
bodies tonight but so it should be and that was
for the manager.
â€œWeâ€™ve spoken to each other on our own we
wanted to do this for the fans. Sometimes we
have great performances but donâ€™t get the
results you need but today that first 25 minutes
was unbelievable. Nobody wouldâ€™ve been able to
cope with us. The best football Iâ€™ve ever been
involved in. It was the Arsenal of old.â€
