Arsenal winger Theo Walcott reflects positively on his finest season at the Emirates Stadium.

The 21-year-old England international has enjoyed his most productive campaign to date for the Gunners, believing his individual game has reached a new level.

"I'm happy with what I've given to the team and think I've learned the game more," said Walcott.

One of the biggest criticisms aimed at Walcott has been his poor final ball delivery, but the explosive speedster has undoubtedly improved that element of his game this term.

"I'm putting in balls for people to gamble on which I think they are getting used to, so hopefully that will continue and I can keep on improving.


"I definitely think my goals and assists have stood out, given that I've missed 12 or 13 weeks through injuries I couldn't prevent."

With 11 goals from 20 starts for Arsene Wenger's side this season, the statistics prove that Walcott is making progress, despite injury hampering part of his campaign.

His teammates have relished his upturn in form, with Robin Van Persie the main beneficiary of Walcott's renewed cutting edge – with all of his last five assists setting up goals for the Dutch striker.

Walcott has arguably been one of Arsenal's best performers this season, and he hopes to celebrate his personal achievement with the team collectively, by going on to secure the Barclays Premier League title.
