Arsenal player Theo Walcott believes that the team, who had been written off due to their recent string of losses, have proved that they are back at their best with their 5-3 victory against Chelsea.
The departure of star players Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri triggered the team’s worst start to a season in 58 years. Since their humiliating 8-2 loss against Manchester United back in August it seems Arsenal have made a surprising comeback and are now just three points off the top four after their Chelsea victory.
After the departure of Nasri and Fabregas Arsene Wenger was accused of panic buys when he brought in Mikel Arteta, Andre Santos, Per Mertesacker and Park Chu-Young before the transfer window had closed. However, Walcott believes that the new arrivals have begun to settle in, helping the team to climb up the table.
Walcott recently stated that ”We are not looking too far ahead. We don’t want to say where we’re going to finish at the end of the season, but the way we’re playing at this moment in time we believe we can beat anyone.”
