Theo Walcott is delighted Arsenal will have an in-form Robin van Persie available for their clash with Barcelona.

The Holland striker has made up for lost time since returning to the side after an all too familiar injury lay-off, scoring 11 times since the turn of the year.

"It's great to see him back fit," said Walcott.

"He's a great player and I link up well with him. He's banging in the goals now and making up for the time he missed.

"He's a dream to play with."
