Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier takes to Twitter to congratulate Theo Walcott on his goal in 2-0 Arsenal win
Matt Le Tissier congratulated Theo Walcott on his Arsenal goal after a 2-0 victory over Stoke City at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Gunners star was handed a starting spot ahead of France international Olivier Giroud and Walcott broke the deadlock with a smart finish in the 30th minute in north London.
Arsene Wenger replaced Walcott for Giroud midway through the second half and the 28-year-old under-fire striker sealed three points with a goal 12 minutes from time.
The England international, who signed a new contract in the summer, took to Twitter to reflect on their first home win of the Premier League season.
