The 23-year-old is Arsenal’s top scorer this season and put the Gunners ahead with a defelcted finish inside one minute at Goodison Park.

Contract rebel Walcott says his finishing skills are sharper than ever and he has been delighted with how he has started the campaign.

Reflecting on his strike at Everton, he told Arsenal’s official website: “Those are the sort of positions that this season and in the last few seasons I have been quite deadly in.

“When given a little sniff I am able to take it now. The goals [I have scored] show that.

“I think I scored 11 last season and 13 the year before. Not just that, but my general play [is getting better] as well.

“The assists are coming now, which is fantastic, and I am enjoying my football.

“I am very happy with the way I have started and it has got to continue. Hopefully I will take it into Saturday’s game.”
