Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is delighted with the current form of star winger Theo Walcott.

Walcott has come under fire from some sections of the Arsenal support at times this season for his performances, but Wenger thinks the former Southampton winger is now back to his best.

"He has been struggling for us because we make him work very hard and I believe that he has become a more complete player," Wenger said.

"He is not a liability any more defensively. He does his defensive job.

"At the start he got heavy legs when he went to win the ball back but now he is getting used to it. He does the job defensively and he is still dangerous going forward."
