Arsenal's English players are now making their mark.
Gibbs said of Walcott: "I really looked up to him quite a lot. He's an outstanding player, a joy to play with. He's one of my close friends here: a top, top boy.
"If anyone wants to idolise someone it should be him. He's very professional. He's a really nice guy. I wouldn't like to be coming up against him if I didn't play for this team."
