Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praised Theo Walcott after the England international came off the bench to score in the 3-1 win at West Ham.

Walcott, who has yet to sign a new deal with the club and has made it clear he wants to play as a central striker, was introduced in the second half and slotted home the goal that put the Gunners ahead for the first time.

"He is slowly getting there," Wenger said. "You're confident now when he gets in front of goal that he will score. Of course he scored an important one today at a moment where the game was a bit 50-50. Theo has an outstanding attitude and I don't rule anybody out. If I did then I would not bring him on in a crucial moment in the game. I believe in him."
