Theo Walcott has insisted that he does not look at the Premier League table to examine Arsenal’s position in the title race.

The north London side continued their recent good form on Saturday as they secured a 3-2 win over Swansea City at The Emirates to make it six wins in a row in the Premier League.

Walcott scored Arsenal’s opening two goals at The Emirates to continue his fine start to the season for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Saturday’s win lifted the Gunners up to second place in the Premier League table and level on points with leaders Manchester City after eight games of the season so far.

However, the England international insists that he pays no attention to where Arsenal are in the table and instead prefers to focus on the next game.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Walcott said: “I don’t look at the table. I genuinely don’t.

“I feel all we can do is control ourselves and not really hope that other teams get results on our behalf. If we play well we win games and that’s all we can do.

“We’ve been in this situation [contending at the top of the table] before. There’s always some sort of blip but hopefully we’re not going to have that this year.

“With the squad we have, if we keep players fit, with players coming back, then who knows?

“You can’t really call the Premier League this year. It’s so unpredictable.”
