Theo Walcott is backing Jack Wilshere to make life easier for him on the pitch for Arsenal next season.

Wilshere, 21, was limited to 20 Premier League starts for the Gunners last term but was in impressive from despite the injury problems which kept him out of the start and end of the 2012-13 campaign.

Walcott believes that his fellow England international will be a key player for Arsene Wenger’s men next season as they look to build on their fourth-place finish.

And the forward is predicting that he and Wilshere will enjoy a fruitful partnership on the pitch for the north Londoners.

“It’s so important for the club that Jack stays fit,” Walcott is quoted as saying by the Guardian.

“He gets everything ticking and makes everything sort of flow. I didn’t really get to play with Jack at all last season so it’s nice that he’s back.

“He’s had so many injury problems at such a young age and now we hope they’ve gone out of the window.

“Without a doubt, he’s going to make our team better. He can spot anything when you’re making your runs. We’re definitely going to have a very good season together.”
