Walcott full of praise for Arsenal's 2-goal hero Oxlade-Chamberlain

Theo Walcott was delighted for Arsenal teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after his two goal haul in victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Walcott reckons his young teammate could have a big future in the game if he continues to take his chances like he did against Blackburn.

"He's very direct, he likes to get at players and that's what any Arsenal fan or player likes to see," Walcott said. "He has plenty of confidence and he is young and he is a player that no one else in the Premier League has faced before so he is totally new to the game.

"He is learning every day in training and you can see he is getting game time, which is important, and the way he is playing at the moment he will keep that position."
