Arsenal's Walcott wants good clattering to test injured shoulder

Theo Walcott has only just returned after four months out of the Arsenal team with a shoulder injury. "The shoulder feels fine," said the 20 year old.

"I still haven't experienced getting clattered yet, so that's the next test. Even though it sounds weird, that will definitely be good for me.

"In Arsenal training, you obviously don't want to injure your own players so you tend to be a little softer, but match days are totally different."

Walcott added: "There is a lot of gym work and I just have to keep it up now to make the shoulder stronger.

"I need a few more training sessions, a few more games coming off the bench and hopefully if I am doing well the boss will put me in."
