Theo Walcott remains upbeat

Theo Walcott on the Premiership title race
Theo Walcott has insisted the title race is still wide open and any one of the top five could be challenge for the championship come the end of the season, Walcott's club side Arsenal suffered a shock defeat to the hands of Newcastle at the weekend and the winger insists the Gunners could very well be challenging for top spot this season.

Walcott remains confident Arsenal will bounce back from their defeat to Newcastle and start pushing the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, speaking on Sky Sports News, the winger said, "Chelsea are very strong, they have excellent, strong and fantastic players, it was great for Liverpool to win and upset them slightly, that is why the Premier League is fantastic,"

"I think there are four or five teams come the end of the season that are going for the Championship, it is great for the neutral it is going to be a great last few weeks to the season, everyone is beating each other.

"I think Chelsea lost six games last year and won the league, so there could be more defeats and we don't mind that as long as we concentrate on ourselves and catch up."

Speaking on Andy Carroll chances with England where the striker hit the winner against Arsenal at the weekend, he said, "He is one of the in-form strikers in the Premier League he is a handful to play against," he said.

"I have had a chance to play with him in the Under-21s when he scored a hat-trick, he is so strong, I am sure if he gets the chance to play for England he will grab it with both hands, he has done tremendously well.

"We [Arsenal] found it very difficult to play against him, and if he gets his chance I look forward to playing with him. He is scoring goals and as a striker that is all you can do."
