Walcott: Why I’m not feeling happy
Theo Walcott has boldly admitted why he is not feeling happy despite the team’s decent result at Manchester United on Saturday.
It took a goal after 89 minutes of action for the Gunners to avoid defeat at Old Trafford following an uninspiring performance.
Olivier Giroud’s effort canceled out the opening goal from Juan Mata which came on the back of a nervy period for Arsene Wenger’s men in the second half as the home side produced attack after attack.
The build-up to the goal which handed Jose Mourinho’s side a 1-0 lead caught Arsenal’s defence in disarray after a quick throw-in from the right flank.
And according to Theo Walcott, his own attempt to stop that move from United in the 69th minute was unconvincing.
“I’m just disappointed because my positioning on the goal was disappointing from my side of it,” Walcott said after match. “Because defensively I want to (cover that). I’ve been doing that all season.
“I knew that was my man to get in there. So on a personal level that’s very disappointing for myself. But the guys, they did well and we managed to get that point that we deserved.”
