Theo Walcott fires Arsenal to 2nd pre-season trophy

Arsenal defeated Wolfsburg 1-0 in their second game of the annual Emirate Cup in London


Arsenal continued their good pre-season form as they won the Emirate Cup following a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg.

Thoe Walcott scored the only goal as the Gunners warmed up for their next week Charity Shield encounter with Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger ringed the changes with only Mesut Ozil remained from the starting 11 that played in Saturday's 6-0 thrashing of Lyon.

Petr Cech also made his first appearance at the Emirates Stadium following his £11million move from Chelsea.

The 33-year-old was impressive as he kept a clean sheet in the win.

Walcot continues to prove that he can flourish in the central striker role he so craves as he was a constant menace in the opposition defence.

He was however wasteful on a number of occasions and also had a strike ruled out for offside.
