Gary Lineker: This is Theo Walcott’s best position for Arsenal
Gary Lineker praises Arsene Wenger for finding Theo Walcott's best position for Arsenal
Gary Lineker has praised Arsene Wenger’s tactical brilliance after Theo Walcott’s impressive performance in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Monday night.
The England striker broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute at Emirates Stadium after Walcott cut in from the left-hand side and curled a powerful finish past City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
Walcott has been used in many different positions for the north London side this term, which included a centre-forward role at the start of the season.
However, former Tottenham Hotspur striker Lineker believes Wenger has found Walcott’s best position after the striker’s brilliant opener on Monday night.
I've always thought the left side of 3 would be Walcott's best position. Suits his outside to in onto his right foot.

Walcott has scored three goals and has made two assists in 11 Premier League games so far for the FA Cup holders this season.
The 26-year-old striker has also netted twice and has made one assist in four Champions League games.
Arsenal are two points behind surprise leaders Leicester City ahead of Saturday’s trip to Southampton.
