Walcott planning to be back at his best for Arsenal shortly

Theo Walcott expects to be back to his best in the next few weeks after making his first Arsenal appearance in around two months on Saturday.

The 24-year old forward played the final 20 minutes of the Gunners' 2-0 home win over his former club Southampton following an abdominal injury and now he is striving to force his way back into Arsene Wenger's starting line-up.

"It is a challenge I can face, I have faced some in my short career so far," said Walcott.

"It is nothing new to me, I know how to deal with it all. I have some fantastic people around me and know how good I am.

"It will take a couple of games, but I am sure I will be back to my best very soon."

He added: "It is frustrating at times, but you have just got to think about getting back fit as soon as you can, and I am happy to be back now."
