Walcott delighted with personal Arsenal form

Theo Walcott feels he is at the top of his game in regards to putting away scoring chances.

The Arsenal forward's opening minute strike in the 1-1 draw with Everton on Wednesday night took his season tally to 10 in all competitions and he believes he is in the best scoring form he has ever been in.

"Those are the sort of positions that this season and in the last few seasons I have been quite deadly in," he told the club's official website.

"When given a little sniff I am able to take it now.

"I think I scored 11 last season and 13 the year before. Not just that, but my general play [is getting better] as well. The assists are coming now, which is fantastic, and I am enjoying my football.

"I am very happy with the way I have started and it has got to continue. Hopefully I will take it into Saturday's game."

The Gunners currently sit seventh on the Premier League ahead of the visit of eighth-placed Swansea City on Saturday.
