Theo Walcott had given his reasons for celebrating after scoring against former club Arsenal In Wednesday’s Premier League clash.
Walcott put boyhood club Southampton 1-0 ahead with a clever finish, before a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equaliser in the second ensured both teams shared the points.
And reflecting on his goal Walcott said he doesn’t see the reason why he should not celebrate.
“Scoring a goal, no matter who you play, is one of the best feelings and I scored many goals here.
“But playing for Southampton is a massive thing for me so to score a goal, why not? Why wouldn’t I celebrate?
The result saw Arsenal fail to win any of their last five Premier League home games and
Arteta’s struggling side now have more red cards – three – in their last five games following Gabriel’s sending off.
And Walcott could sense things were badly wrong at his old club.
The former England star, on-loan at Southampton from Everton, said: “I felt a lot of fear in Arsenal tonight (Wednesday), to be honest.
“They’re going through a very difficult time and we’re one of the worst teams to play at this moment in time.
“It shows how far we’ve come that we’re very disappointed to come away without the three points.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
