Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has predicted that teammate Theo Walcott will be one of the best strikers in the world in three years' time.

The Spanish playmaker says 19-year-old Walcott has been 'transformed' by his hat trick for England against Croatia in September.

Fabregas said: "Confidence is so important. Theo is the same player, but with maybe 300 times more confidence. That makes a massive change."
