Arsenal endured somewhat of a slow start to their 2015-16 season, as they opened with a shocking loss to West Ham United.
However, the Gunners have gotten back on their feet and have risen to fourth place in the Premier League standings. Forward Theo Walcott expressed his optimism for the Gunners’ future.
“They are going to start going in. Definitely. We are going to start winning these games a lot more comfortably,” Walcott said, according to the Daily Star.
“As soon as we hit our peak, we are going to push on. I’m pretty sure of that. When people say we’re not playing that great, we’re starting to get to where we want to be.”
Walcott himself is still looking to prove that he can be a reliable forward for the Gunners, but he scored his first goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Stoke City.
Arsenal face London rivals Chelsea this weekend, and Walcott’s words will be seen as a warning by the Blues who have endured a woeful start to its title defence.
Chelsea currently sit in 17th place following a 3-1 loss to Everton at Goodison Park.
This will be the Blues’ golden opportunity to produce season-defining win, while the Gunners will have the chance to climb to keep keep pace with league leaders Manchester City.
