Arsenal have not won the league since 2004 and have often been found wanting in big games
Following their 3-0 win over Manchester United, Arsenal striker Theo Walcott has opined that the victory is a statement to the rest of the English Premier League that they are ready to launch a proper title challenge.
The Gunners came straight out the blocks hitting three goals in the first 20 minutes with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal have not won the league since 2004 and have often been found wanting in big games.
For Walcott however, this victory is a statement to the rest of the Premier League.
“After the Olympiakos disappointment we started this game completely differently. We caught them on the break, we maybe eased off in the second half but the clean sheet was crucial for the whole team today,” Wenger said after the game.
“This game will send out a message to the Premier League that we are ready to have a go this season.”
Arsenal’s next league game will be against Watford after the international break.
