Theo Walcott: 'Every game in the Premier League is very tough and very inter

The England forward believes the Gunners can take their momentum from the end of last season into the new campaign - and profit from the managerial changes at their biggest rivals.

"The teams that finished above us have changed their managers," he told the club's official website. "We've still got ours.

"It's always going to be tough. Every game in the Premier League is very tough and very interesting. It always comes down to the last few games. So we need to believe in ourselves.

"The way we ended the season last year, 11 games undefeated - we need to do it from the start, which I believe we can.

"The manager shows so much belief in us in every single game so we need to step up and I think we've got a very good chance of challenging this season.

"I got 21 goals last season and I want to try and push on from there. I want to try and get to 25. That's my benchmark but I believe in myself and that's the main thing.

"Time will tell if players come in or not but we just work with the squad we've got at the moment. Come the start of the season, there could be changes. We know it's a very long campaign but we're all very excited about our prospects."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
