Walcott: I am completely different


Theo Walcott believes he is 'completely different' this season and is determined to get even better.

Having struggled for game time last year, Walcott has started all of Arsenals Premier League match so far this season and is expected to be included in the team for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Basel.

The 27-year-old admits he struggled in the latter stages of the previous campaign but is delighted with how he is faring this time around.

"I found it difficult towards the end of last season, I didn't get many opportunities." Walcott told reporters.

"I spoke to many people and woke up something in my system - I am completely different. I just want to do better and better, after all the faith people have had in me.

"Maybe in the past I was thinking about others rather than myself, and I think it's about getting the balance right. There are always ups and downs, but it's all about now, and now it is going well."
