Theo Walcott has opened up about what went on in the Arsenal dressing room at half time during the clash against West Ham.
The Gunners, who lost this fixture on the opening day of last season, were struggling to threaten Slaven Bilic’s side for much of the first half.
With several fans left frustrated by a 0-0 score-line at the break, Arsenal produced a more clinical second half performance by scoring three goals.
And according to Walcott, who was on the score sheet once again, better communication between the players and the manager at the break is what made the difference.
“We always tend to leave that between ourselves,” Walcott responded when asked about what was said during half time.
“Players will speak to each other, the manager will get his message across and then it’s up to us to do a job. We did that.
“We listened to what the manager had to say.
“He’s taken a lot of grief recently and we’ve just been in the background doing what we do.
“We’re the players that go out there very week and try to perform.
“It’s been a tough run, I can’t lie, but hopefully the win can push us on.”
