Walcott: Our Belief Grows

Arsenal striker Theo Walcott says that with every game his side wins, the belief that they can lift the English Premier League title grows.

Arsenal currently top the log with 45 points form 20 matches after their 2-0 win over Cardiff on New Year’s Day, and are now one point clear of Manchester City.

The Gunners, though, left it till late with Nicklas Bendtner scoring two minutes from time before Walcott adding a second in injury time.

Speaking after the match Walcott said that if his team want to win the league title they have to keep fighting till the end of every match and that is exactly what they are doing.

“If you want to win titles then you have got to go to the end and the thing about this team at the moment is that we never give up,” said Walcott.

“Every game that we win the belief gets stronger and stronger.”

Walcott also touched on the speculation of the manager bringing in a new striker in the January transfer period following the injuries to Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner.

“To be fair that is for the manager to decide if he wants to go out and buy anyone, whoever will come to the club in January, if not it is going to make the club stronger anyway,” added Walcott.

“It is always nice to have competition with players coming in, but January is such a difficult period in the transfer market to get players in, especially the top players.

“The boss has already said that he is looking for special players and we have got a lot of special players in that dressing room.”
