Arsenal ace Walcott beaming after stunning hat-trick
Walcott has scored four goals and won one decisive penalty in the three games he has started up front and he now has 14 for the season.
"I enjoy playing in whatever position but it was just telling the manager to give me the opportunities to play up front," the former Southampton man told ESPN.
"I'm not saying I'm always going to play up front but it's just showing what I can do but hopefully I've opened a few eyes and it's just a different option.
"Hopefully, I can start to take it a bit more often now."
