Oxlade-Chamberlain 'can't wait' to have his 'big bro' back in Arsenal action

Walcott New Season

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been speaking about Theo Walcott's impending return to action for Arsenal.

Arsenal get their Premier League campaign under way tomorrow, when they welcome Crystal Palace to The Emirates Stadium.

The club go into the game on a high after thrashing champions Manchester City in the Community Shield and after a summer of transfer productivity in the form of David Ospina, Callum Chambers and of course Alexis Sanchez.

And the aura of positivity at the club continued today as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain celebrated his 21st birthday - although he was not to worried about that. No he was more pleased to see his 'big bro' Theo Walcott back in action on the training pitch - as he showed by sharing this video and accompanying message on Facebook:


Walcott has been out of action after tearing knee ligaments in a cup tie against Arsenal's arch-rivals Tottenham in January. The injury kept him out for the rest of the season and the World Cup, but he is making his way back into action gradually - Arsene Wenger stating he should join full training at the beginning of September.

Walcott has been sprinting again this week, and Oxlade-Chamberlain is just one player who cannot wait to have him back in contention for Arsenal this season.
