Theo Walcott Says he Has no Reason not to Celebrate after Scoring Arsenal
Arsenal and Everton former player Theo Walcott have come out to explain why he celebrated against his former club after scoring. The player has given his reasons for celebrating against Arsenal.
Walcott who was sold to his boyhood club Southampton opened the scoring in the midweek game. The player put the Saints in front with a clever finish, before a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled the scores to end his goal drought as they both shared points.
According to Walcott, he said he doesn’t see the reason why he should not celebrate. He said: “Scoring a goal, no matter who you play is one of the best feelings and I scored many goals here.”
“But playing for Southampton is a massive thing for me so to score a goal, why not? Why wouldn’t I celebrate? The result saw Arsenal fail to win any of their last five Premier League home games.
Mikel Arteta teams have been struggling in the English Premier League. Also, Arsenal received their third red card in three consecutive games. The first was Nicolas Pepe, the second is Xhaka and now Gabriel received his yesterday.
The former England star on-loan at Southampton from Everton, said: “I felt a lot of fear in Arsenal tonight (Wednesday), to be honest.” “They’re going through a very difficult time and we’re one of the worst teams to play at this moment in time.”
“It shows how far we’ve come that we’re very disappointed to come away without the three points.”
