Arsenal are looking to prove that they can field a legitimate scoring attack, but they face question marks in the striker position.
Gunners legend Thierry Henry essentially acknowledged these concerns.
He was left unable to answer a question about forward Theo Walcott.
Henry was asked whether he believes Walcott can hold down the striker’s role and be a reliable scorer for Arsenal.
He sat in stunned silence, which indicated that he did not want to make any inflammatory comments about the Gunners’ rising star.
Arsenal are currently led by Chilean international Alexis Sanchez, who is still resting from his country’s Copa America title run.
The remainder of their scoring attack is led by Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, who both give Arsenal fans reason for concern.
Walcott has shown potential as a featured star, but he was unable to stay healthy last season and has not broken out yet.
Giroud scored 14 goals last season but has proven to be inconsistent, and he often disappeared in big moments.
It remains to be seen whether Walcott will be able to prove Henry wrong if his silence was because of not believing in him.
