Ray Parlour: This Arsenal man has been superb this season, he has improved a lot

Ray Parlour heaps praise on Theo Walcott for his improved performances for Arsenal this season

Ray Parlour has heaped praise on Theo Walcott for his upturn in form for Arsenal this season.

The Arsenal forward has looked like a man reborn this term and has already scored more than 10 goals for the north London side to help them challenge for the Premier League title.

Walcott has often come in for criticism for failing to produce consistent performances and live up to his potential at The Emirates following his transfer to the club from Southampton back in 2006.

However, the England international has earned praise for improving his performances for Arsene Wenger’s men this season.

And former Arsenal midfielder Parlour has been thrilled by Walcott’s improved displays for the north London club so far this term.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast before Sunday’s trip to Manchester City, Parlour said: “Theo Walcott has been superb this year. He has put in some brilliant performances.

“He has been much better than last season.”
