Arsenal winger Theo Walcott admits his natural pace has made him a Premier League player.

He is one of the fastest players in the Premier League and confessed it is the biggest part of his game.

Walcott, in an interview with Soccer AM to be shown on Sky Sports 2 today, joked: “I’d be rubbish! It’s about touch as well, but pace in the Premier League is massive.
