Arsenal wing ace Walcott admits suffering injury terrors

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott admits he suffered from injury terrors last season. Walcott today revealed his form suffered last season because he was terrified of getting injured but believes his fitness problems are now behind him for good.

"Now I am going into games not thinking about getting injured at all," he told the London Evening Standard.

"Last season, I kept going into games thinking I could get injured again and that's when my form suffered. Now I am just going out and enjoying trying to express myself and trying to prove people wrong.

"I am going to the gym and working on the shoulders but I don't want to gain too much upper- body strength because I don't want to slow myself down.

"I want to look after my body a bit more after suffering so many injuries - none relating to the shoulder at all - it's one of those things you have to deal with and I just have to look after myself a bit better."
