Another midfielder that is hard to ignore at the moment is Arsenal’s Theo Walcott the English winger has been in blistering form over the last number of weeks and despite the fact that through out all this his much publicised contract negations were rumbling on Walcott as produced the goods more often than not.
Much has been made about Walcott’s desire to play as an out and out striker with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger opting to deploy him up front on oaccasion, but regardless of his position on the field one thing is clear, Walcott can produce attacking returns that are hard to ignore.
After a somewhat indifferent start to the season that saw Walcott make a solitary start in the first 10 games he has gone on since then to produce either a goal or an assist in all but two of the games he has played in, which for a midfielder who was not particularly known for his goal scoring ability is rather impressive.
Having notched up eight goals and eleven assists last season Walcott has gone onto to eclips that easily with 12 games still left to play this season managing 11 goals and 11 assists to his name to date.
As far as the fixtures are concerned Arsenal welcome Aston Villa, Everton, Reading, Norwich, Manchester United and Wigan. These games are certainly games you would expect Walcott have a say in and given that 7 of his 11 goals and 7 of his 11 assists have come at the Emirates he is certainly capable of performing in front of a packed Emirates stadium.
Away from home Arsenal travel to Tottenham, Swansea, West Brom, Fulham, QPR and Newcastle and again these games look very enticing for fantasy managers look for a midfielder to produce attacking returns. We are well aware of the fact that none of these side have the best defensive record as is evident by the current league positions with Tottenham perhaps being the exception, but as we all know a North London derby is no ordinary game and anything can happen on the day.
