Theo Walcott takes to social media after helping to fire Arsenal to a 3-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League
Theo Walcott took to social media to dedicate his goal to his two sons after he helped to fire Arsenal to a 3-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.
The north London side took the lead early on when Alexis Sanchez fired home from close range after an error from Steve Cook gifted him possession.
However, the visitors drew level shortly after when Callum Wilson dispatched his penalty following a foul by Nacho Monreal in the box.
Walcott headed Arsenal into the lead again in the 53rd minute when he connected with Nacho Monreal’s cross.
And Sanchez made the points secure when he tapped home Olivier Giroud’s low pass to make it 3-1 and wrap up the victory.
Walcott, whose wife gave birth to their second child on Friday, posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “For my boys Finley & Arlo 😍 #COYG”
Arsenal will host Southampton in the quarter-finals of the League Cup at The Emirates on Wednesday night.
