Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Roy Keane says he will not be “getting carried away” with the current form of Theo Waltcott, despite his outstanding performances to the season.
The England international scored both goals on Wednesday night as we defeated 2-0 to take his tally to the season to five goals with one assist.
He has been superbly much more actively after returning to the right wing, but according to the former Man Utd skipper Keane, speaking on ITV Sport, he has put a dampener on his form and told him to “relax”.
“It’s took him a while to get settled,” said the Republic of Ireland assistant manager. “Listen he’s had a good week. The guy needs to relax. Try to play well for the next seven or eight months.
“Tonight was a lovely game for Arsenal. When they’re in that form and have that amount of possession, they’re great to watch – they could’ve seven, eight, nine goals easily.
“But the crunch games are still to come for them, when the cold nights come in, with half the Arsenal players with their gloves on, so I wouldn’t be getting carried away with Walcott.
“He scored some lovely goals tonight, with the simplicity of his movement, it was outstanding, but he’s got to do it over the course the next year or two.”
