Walcott lauds his chemistry with two Arsenal team-mates

In-form Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott has stated that he enjoys playing alongside Gunners team-mates Hector Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez.

The North London side are on a good run of form and the England international forward has played a role in this success.

Walcott has reverted back to his right-wing berth this season, putting ideas of playing as a centre forward to one side.

The former Southampton man scored both goals as Arsenal beat FC Basel 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with his confidence clear to see around the Emirates Stadium.

Walcott has hailed the partnerships that he has struck up with Bellerin down the right-hand side and with Sanchez in the final third.

“It’s getting a good sort of partnership there, but it’s not just that, the whole team seems to be clicking,” he told the club’s official website.

“Me and Hector have got a good relationship on that right-hand side, it’s quite a pacy right-hand side.

“I think the whole team tends to react well and defend well as a unit and clean sheets are going to win games because we’re going to score plenty of goals.

“That combination between me and Alexis, it’s boding well but it’s obviously still very early into the season, so hopefully we can all stay fit and it’s going to be a good run.”

Walcott has benefited from Aaron Ramsey’s absence through injury and it will be interesting to see Arsene Wenger’s team selection when the all-action Welshman returns to availability in the near future.

The Gunners face Burnley this weekend and will be keen to register three points and keep their current run going.
