Theo Walcott's warning to opposition teams after Arsenal return

Arsenal's Theo Walcott says that he is faster than ever before, after training hard during his time on the sidelines with injury.

Theo Walcott says that he is faster than ever before after returning from injury recently.

Walcott has established a reputation as one of the quickest players in England, but he believes that he has got even quicker after his spell on the sidelines.

The England international has been ruled out for nearly the entirety of 2014 so far, but it seems that he has been working hard to improve during his time out.

He says that he has been clocked running at a faster speed than ever before during a question and answer session with the Gunners' official Twitter account today

Walcott made his comeback to first-team action last weekend, when he came off the substitutes' bench to rapturous applause during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Burnley.

It was a pleasing moment for the 25-year-old, who has suffered for a prolonged period of time with a knee injury he picked up in January of this year. 

Walcott will be hoping that he can play a big part in Arsenal's season now, after spending a frustratingly large amount of time out. 

The Gunners have started the season in disappointing form, and they are struggling in all competitions currently.

Although Alexis Sanchez, the side's marquee summer addition, has settled in brilliantly, they have still only managed four wins in the Premier League and their defensive worries are being exposed.

Walcott is unlikely to be the solution to this problem, but he should give the side another attacking dimension and he will be hoping that this increased threat will compensate for their deficiencies.

The jet-heeled attacker will be looking to continue on his comeback to full fitness this weekend, where he will be hoping to play a part in Wenger's men's match against Swansea City.
