Arsenal hat-trick hero Theo Walcott was quick to credit Thierry Henry after victory over Newcastle United.

Walcott has benefitted from practising alongside Arsenal legend Henry, who is currently training with Arsenal and is expected to sign a short-term loan deal from the New York Red Bulls next month.

Walcott said: "I've learned a lot from Thierry and just to have him around in training is great. You learn from the best. He showed great qualities on loan here last season so, hopefully, that can be sorted out."
