Theo Walcott is convinced that Arsenal have what it takes to end their eight-year wait for a trophy this season.

The Gunners are currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League table and also lead the way in their Champions League group after a flying start.

I do believe that Arsenal will be up there at the end of the season

And although Walcott, 24, admits that the English top flight is as competitive as ever, he feels Arsene Wenger’s men have already begun to showcase their title credentials.

“A lot teams will drop points and a lot of teams have dropped points,” Walcott told Sky Sports.

“In the Premier League this year it’s so different – everyone’s beating each other. It’s the hardest league in the world.

“We went to Cardiff and got a great result – they’ve taken a lot of points and will continue to take a lot of points from the big clubs.

“I do believe that Arsenal will be up there at the end of the season.

“We’ve got so much belief in each other, we trust each other and when you have that in the team, the manager senses that as well, and you’re going to push on and achieve great things.”

Walcott also paid tribute to Arsenal’s new-found defensive stability, with the Gunners having conceded just once in six league games.

He added: “We’re always going to score goals but the back five, even the players that have come in from the bench, have been absolutely solid.

“That all comes down to the work the whole squad has done without the ball.”
