Walcott insists Arsenal players are good enough

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is adamant the squad is good enough to win the title.

As Walcott prepares to return to the fray at home to Blackburn today after five weeks out with an ankle injury he is well up for the challenge.

He told The Sun: "We've been competing hard in four competitions but three have gone and we need to go on and win the Premier League now especially with the position we are in, with a game in hand and Manchester United to come.

"We are not asking other teams to do us favours against Man United or Chelsea, we don't expect that. We have to go out and win our games then there is no problem.

"Being at a top-four club you want to be winning things. I want to look back on my career and look at how many trophies I've won.

"This year is the greatest opportunity for us to win something. It's going to be very tight but there is confidence in the camp.

"I've been around the boss for five years and he has experience of winning trophies.

"He has so much belief in us and we want to do it for him. He's always there for us and always blames himself instead of the players - and we want to repay him.

"We do have meetings and what is said stays in house. But it's fair to say the boss expects us to start winning things."
