Theo Walcott hopes he and team-mate Ozil can avoid further injuries


Winger Theo Walcott wants to play alongside Mesut Ozil for years to come at Arsenal as the pair were both on target for the Gunners against Aston Villa.

Walcott, 25, suffered a serious cruciate knee ligament injury last year with the German international suffering the same faith months later.

But with both players now back in action, Walcott believes that the Gunners can still have a shout in the title race.

"The whole place is buzzing," Walcott told the club's official website after the 5-0 home win against Paul Lambert's men.

"When the team is on top of their game everything seems to be happening for them.

"Since Mesut's joined the club I haven't had the opportunity to play with him and I'm very grateful to be playing with such a great talent. Hopefully we can both continue to stay fit and charge up the Premier League.

"Mesut has worked tremendously hard coming back from injury like myself and he's showed it on the pitch today."
