Theo Walcott: I think the boss will have a selection headache soon


Arsenal striker Theo Walcott says he still needs time to be back at his very best.

The Englishman sustained a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee last year but featured in Arsenal's 3-0 over Stoke on Sunday.

And with Mesut Ozil also making his long-awaited comeback from injury, the 25-year-old believes manager Arsene Wenger will soon have a "selection headache" to deal with.

"I'm not quite sharp enough yet but that will come," Walcott told the club's official website.

"I'm just happy to be back and it's the same with Mesut [Ozil] as well.

"It gives a boost to the whole squad when players who've been out long-term are coming back. It lifts everyone's spirit.

"Going into one of the busiest periods of the season, you want all your players fit and I think the boss will have a selection headache soon."
