Theo Walcott joined the likes of Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas, Danny Welbeck and Emmanuel Adebayor to score a goal against Arsenal after leaving the club to join another Premier League side.

The Englishman spent 12 years as a Gunner and played 398 games for us in all competitions.

He scored over 100 goals and provided more than 75 assists, and he will always remain one of the most underrated footballers to ever play for us.

Walcott was a forgotten man at the Emirates since he left the club in 2018. He joined Everton for £20 million (BBC) almost three years ago, but that move didn’t quite work out for him.

He moved to Southampton on a season-long loan deal earlier this summer, and that is proving to be a brilliant decision.

The 31-year-old has two goals and two assists for the Saints in eight starts so far. He has been a constant threat to the opposition, and he showed every Arsenal fan what we have been missing with an excellent goal to give his side the lead.

Walcott caused our defenders a lot of problems. His pace and movement brought about a lot of confusion, and his brilliant turn to get away from Gabriel forced the Brazilian to bring him down and get himself a second yellow card.

Arsenal managed to get a draw thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s equaliser. However, Walcott was the talk of the town because of his goal, and some Gunners supporters feel that it was his best performance in a long time.

Here’s how a few Arsenal fans reacted to Walcott’s performance
