Theo Walcott maintains when Arsenal get it right, they can "kill" any of their rivals for the Barclays Premier League title - but accepts the Gunners cannot afford any more off days.

Arsene Wenger's young side once again came up short when it really mattered as Chelsea returned to the top of the table following a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge, with Didier Drogba scoring both goals. The Blues are now nine points ahead of the third-placed Gunners, who had been comprehensively beaten by Manchester United in front of their own fans the previous weekend.

"We dominated the game, but Chelsea took their chances and you have got to be decisive," Walcott said.

"We need to learn from that and then push on for the Liverpool game, because if we keep the ball like we did against Chelsea, but create more chances, we can kill anyone.

"However, everyone just remembers the results, and that is what we have to do - win these games and not lie down in the big matches."

Walcott told Arsenal TV Online: "We have to believe we are always in the title race, no matter where we are in the league.

"We would like to have more points than we had from these last few games, but now we just have to get the result against Liverpool.

"Every Premier League game is hard, and other teams can drop points, but we just need to concentrate on ourselves.

"If we perform like we did at Chelsea, but take our chances, then we can beat anyone on our day."
