Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger fielded Theo Walcott in a striker's role for victory at Wigan Athletic.

Walcott was again given his chance up front after impressing in the role against Reading, and Wenger gave the England man qualified praise.

He said: "I wouldn't like to judge him on one game but he has the ingredients to play there. He didn't have much service, he was a bit isolated but he can always be decisive. Today again he made the decision and he got the penalty."
