This is sweet. Theo Walcott has dedicated Arsenal’s win over United to Wenger and says it is the best team performance he has ever been in.
The Gunners ran rampant in the first half, with Sanchez striking twice and Walcott assisting Ozil’s second goal of the season.
Wenger was criticised for Arsenal’s 3-2 loss to Olympiacos earlier in the week, but Walcott says the win reminds him of the Arsenal of old.
“You could sense the desire was there we need to show that in more games. But our Premier League record is actually very good,” Walcott told Sky Sports.
“Everyone is beating everyone else at the moment. But we’re where we are want to be just about but we want to be dominant at home against big teams and we should be playing like that every week. There will be a lot of aching bodies tonight but so it should be and that was for the manager.
“We’ve spoken to each other on our own we wanted to do this for the fans. Sometimes we have great performances but don’t get the results you need but today that first 25 minutes was unbelievable. Nobody would’ve been able to cope with us. The best football I’ve ever been involved in. It was the Arsenal of old.”
