Arsenal's Walcott has mixed feelings about this season

Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott admits he has mixed feelings over what he has achieved this season.

"At the start of this season I wanted to make 20 to 25 starts and score five goals," he conceded. "At the moment I'm on 17 starts and five goals, so it looks like I will fall short of that.

"I would have liked to have played more, especially lately because I feel I have been playing quite well."

The England international continued: "I don't want to be coming off the bench all the time.

"I want to get in the starting line-up and I know I need to produce what I do in practise when I start the games. That's my next target.

"To be honest, I did not expect to be back with England this soon. But I have the experience of being around the squad, so that definitely helps.

"Hopefully I can start some games for Arsenal and show Mr Capello what I can do. I want to concentrate on Arsenal first and foremost, but England have a couple of friendlies coming up and I would like to be involved."
