Walcott admits Wenger is not under pressure

Theo Walcott believes Arsene Wenger will come out fighting with the Frenchman under intense scrutiny after Arsenal’s torrid start to the season.

The Gunners have lost three of their five opening games this season and Walcott is hoping they can get back to winning ways against Bolton this weekend.

The England international told Absolute Radio: “Well the boss, he’s a great man. He can deal with anything thrown at him. He’s been at the club for over 15 years and so he’s not under any pressure at all.

“We need to make sure we’re at it at Bolton at the weekend. It’s going to be a tough game. They’ve come from a good result during midweek. 

“We’ve got our home fans as well. The boss, yeah, he can deal with anything.”

The club have looked vulnerable at the back after conceding 14 goals already this season.

Walcott said: “Well we’ve just got to forget about that. We’re scoring goals, we managed to score three goals away from home and still lose, which was disappointing, but we just need to forget about it. We need to just move on. That is important for us, not to dwell on these results we’ve had.

“The Arsenal fans have always been great. They’ve always shown so much support to all the players and they’ve continued to do that. We just need to look at ourselves and try and perform, get results, and that’s what we’ll be judged on, and try and win something for these fans.”
