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.

Walcott has scored three goals and has made two assists in 11 Premier League games so far for the FA Cup holders this season.
