Walcott: Everyone is scared of us

Published Add your comment

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott insists his side have got their rivals running scared heading into the business end of the season.

After sweeping aside Villarreal to set up a Champions League semi-final against Manchester United, Walcott's focus is now on the FA Cup and the last-four clash against Chelsea at the weekend.

"There is a lot of confidence in the dressing room, everyone is buzzing," Walcott said. "We feel every team are scared of us as soon as we step on the pitch. It's great to play when things are going like that."

He added: "We are playing brilliant football and scoring goals from all sorts of positions which helps the team.

"We are defending well and even though we have players out injured, others are coming in and doing just as good a job.

"It will be difficult against United but we play them regularly in the Premier League and do very well against them. They are probably the best team in the world but as long as we dig in, I'm sure we'll be fine."

After watching Chelsea ship seven goals in their last two games, Walcott and Arsenal's other attacking players are relishing the opportunity to put Guus Hiddink's defence under more pressure.

Walcott said: "We will be looking to utilise their weak spots.

"If we play like we did against Villarreal, then I'm sure we'll get some goals."
