Theo Walcott has been stepping up his preparations for the new Premier League season by taking personal training sessions in his own spare time.

The Arsenal forward is clearly determined to make his mark this season as Arsenal gear up for their Premier League opener against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Walcott came in for plenty of criticism for failing to produce consistent form for the Gunners last season as the north London side ended up without at trophy and in second place in the Premier League table.

However, the England striker is clearly determined to prove himself this season and has been making sure that he is in the best physical shape heading into the new campaign.

Walcott posted the picture above of himself taking part in a workout session at home on his personal Instagram account and wrote:
