Arsenal are ready to challenge for the title this season, according to Theo Walcott.

Walcott has challenged his club to hit the ground running this coming season if they are to bring the Premier League title back to north London for the first time since 2004.

Walcott and the Gunners managed a 10 game unbeaten run which helped Arsenal to steal fourth place from local rivals Tottenham on the final day of the Premier League season.

Unfortunately Arsenal struggled towards the start of the campaign and went out of the Capital One Cup to Bradford and the FA Cup to Blackburn and slumped to 10th place in the Premier League in December. Inconsistency was a big problem for the Gunners last season as they struggled to get going.

The Arsenal forward who was their top goal scorer last season has stated if his side can get off to a flying start then there is no reason why they can't go on to win the title.

Walcott told Sky Sports: "We need to remember those moments that we had and make sure we do it from the start, because we could be challenging for anything. We could beat anyone.

"We want that sort of fear factor, especially at the Emirates. It is quite frustrating at times, because we should have done that at the start of the season. Who knows where we would have been."

A large amount of money is available to Wenger to add to his squad this summer which will further fuel the belief of Theo Walcott that the north London outfit can challenge for the title in the 2013/14 campaign.
