Walcott: My time up front will come

Theo Walcott says his long-term future is up front after giving Arsenal another glimpse of what they could be missing in their latest North London derby thrashing of 10-man Tottenham.

Asked whether he still craved a more central role, Walcott told talkSPORT: “Oh, without a doubt. I’ve always believed I’m a striker.

“The boss gave me five minutes at the end there and I managed to grab a goal, which is great. But when you’ve got someone like Olivier, who’s playing well, there’s no need to change a winning team at the moment.

“I think my time will come. I’ve just got to be a little more patient. But I want to play up front. That’s my position.”
