Theo Walcott hailed the “fantastic” support from Arsenal fans after the stunning 6-0 victory over Ludogorets on Wednesday evening.

Walcott bagged his side’s second goal at the Emirates, with Mesut Ozil scoring a hat-trick alongside goals from Gunners attacking duo Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The north London club are now in a comfortable position in Group A, with two wins and a draw.

They sit at the top of the group, level with Paris Saint-Germain and six points ahead of both Basel and Ludogorets.

Walcott, clearly delighted with the win took to his personal Twitter account on Thursday morning and paid a special tribute to the fans.

Walcott, 27, has been at Arsenal for 10 years after joining from Southampton in the 2006 winter window.

He was initially brought in as a striker, but his pace has seen Arsene Wenger convert him into a winger.

Despite playing from a wide position Walcott has started the new campaign in impressive form with eight goals from 10 fixtures for the Gunners in all competitions.

Arsenal are currently sat in second place with 19 points after their opening eight encounters in the Premier League and will face Middlesbrough at home on Saturday.

In other Arsenal news, Krystian Bielik is likely to leave the Gunners on loan in the January transfer window.
