Walcott: I need more goals

Theo Walcott concedes he needs to find the net on a more regular basis for Arsenal, but is not hung up on the idea as long as the Gunners keep winning.

The 22-year-old has scored four goals in 25 appearances for club and country this season, the last of which came against Chelsea in October.

Walcott has, however, been one of the key providers for the Gunners this season, and has laid on numerous chances for free-scoring Robin van Persie.

The England winger does, though, realises he needs to be more clinical in front of goal, especially if he is to achieve his ambition of migrating into a central striking role.

"I've always enjoyed my football,” Walcott told the official Arsenal website.

“The manager has got a lot of faith in me, doing the jobs forward and back as well.

“Hopefully I've got that right balance. I've been getting assists and now I need to get some goals in my game as well but that will come.

"If I want to be the player that I want to be, playing up front, then I need to be shooting on goal when I get in that position.

"I'm not too fussed about that though, as long as the team is winning."
