Walcott seeking strong start

Theo Walcott knows that Arsenal will have to make a strong start in order to compete for the Premier League crown this season.

Arsene Wenger’s men finished 16 points behind champions Manchester United last term despite closing the campaign with a 10-match unbeaten run that propelled them into fourth spot ahead of rivals Tottenham.

Inconsistent form earlier in the year put paid to any hopes Wenger’s charges had of challenging for the title, while surprise defeats to Blackburn and Bradford City in the FA Cup and League Cup denied the club the chance to end an eight-year wait for a major trophy.

Walcott is hoping Arsenal can maintain their momentum from last season and challenge the likes of United, Manchester City and Chelsea for the title.

“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,” the England winger told Sky Sports.

“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.”

Walcott made 44 appearances in the 2012-13 campaign, scoring 21 goals.
