England international Theo Walcott has admitted that he was not enjoying it at Arsenal towards the backend of his Gunners career. The attacker spent more than a decade with the north London giants but he was left frustrated during the tailend of his career where he struggled for regular playing time.
Walcott joined the Toffees from the Gunners during the backend of the previous campaign and he proved a genuine success, contributing three goals and three assists under the tutelage of Sam Allardyce. With the change in management, Walcott has managed to cope much better with the tactics of manager Marco Silva this term and he appears on course for a top campaign having already amassed two goals and two assists from the opening seven league matches.
Meanwhile, Everton have managed to make a decent run at the start of the campaign with nine points from their opening seven games. Nonetheless, the head coach should be disappointed after the club failed to make the most of the easier fixture schedule and they can now expect a tough ride as they are yet to face five of the previous season’s top six during the first half of the season.
