Arsenal skipper Van Persie: I owe scoring form to Walcott

Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie says he owes his goal scoring form to Theo Walcott. The flying Dutchman thinks the special connection he shares with Walcott is 'vital' to his attempt to prolong his blistering scoring run.

He told the Mirror: "After every single goal, people ask me, 'Who gave the assist?' I just say, 'Who do you think?'

"We have that connection. I know what he is going to do, which is very important.

"It's vital to have a player around me, as a striker, who knows where I move, how I move, do I want the ball into feet, do I want it behind?

"He knows where to find me. Stuff like that is vital."
