Theo Walcott has thanked Arsenal’s fans for their support after he helped to fire the Gunners to a 3-2 victory over Swansea City on Saturday.

The north London club were made to work hard for the three points despite taking a 2-0 lead thanks to Theo Walcott’s first-half double.

The Gunners were pegged back to 2-1 before half-time but Mesut Ozil added a third for the home side, before the visitors scored again to set up a tense finale.

Arsenal’s task was made more difficult when Granit Xhaka was sent off as Arsene Wenger’s men managed to hold on for the three points.

Walcott has been in solid form so far this season and the England international was delighted with how Saturday’s game panned out.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player, Walcott said: “[Six wins in a row] is a great achievement, definitely.

“I think we tend to actually start very poorly in the Premier League. This year we’ve obviously had a few additions and they’ve settled into the squad really well and you can see that.

“It’s not just the starting 11, it’s the whole squad – 25 of us that are working hard, day in and day out. I think you can tell that on the pitch [because] the passion is there.

“The fans were with us today, they were with us from start to finish and we’ve got to thank them for that, definitely.”

Arsenal are currently second in the Premier League table and joint top alongside Manchester City.
