Theo Walcott thanks Arsenal fans on Instagram after his return to action against Burnley
Theo Walcott took to social media on Saturday to thank Arsenal fans for their “incredible” reception after he made his return from injury in the 3-0 win over Burnley.
The England international was an 80th-minute substitute at Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger’s men recorded back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.
Walcott had been out of action after damaging his knee ligaments in the FA Cup win over Tottenham last season and having to undergo surgery.
And the forward posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “Great to be back and such an incredible welcome from the fans – thank you all so much. #afc #COYG #SpeedMatters”
Two goals from Alexis Sanchez and one from Calum Chambers handed the Gunners victory at Emirates Stadium.
The win lifted Arsenal up to fourth place in the Premier League table.
