Chelsea skipper Terry amazed Arsenal boss Wenger refuses to play Walcott as striker

Chelsea skipper John Terry is amazed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn't playing Theo Walcott as a striker. Despite Arsenal's difficulties, Walcott, 22, has scored three goals already.

And he carried that form into England training this week, when he amazed his colleagues by netting four times in a practice match, says the Daily Express.

Walcott's Arsenal goals have come from the right wing, where he plays for club and country. But Walcott played up front with Andy Carroll in the England practice session in which he went goal crazy.

England captain Terry was on the opposite team to Walcott and, after being hit for four, pulled him to one side to ask: "How are you not playing up front for Arsenal?"
