#AFC truly fantastic in first half. Pace, movement & incision, Basel chasing shadows. Walcott and Sanchez immense. More of the same please.

It's early days (and they've certainly proven me wrong), but Alexis and Walcott have built quite the partnership up front. #afc

He scores when he wants to. We are seeing a rejuvenated and transformed Theo Walcott! #AFC

Walcott shutting up all the people, including me who put him down. What a shift he has put in I the past few weeks. Hope it continues! #afc

Walcott moved to the Emirates Stadium from Southampton in 2006.
He initially started as a striker, converting to a winger, but he clearly hasn’t lost his eye for goal.
The forward has made seven appearances for the north London side in the new campaign, scoring three goals.
He has helped Arsene Wenger’s side start the season in impressive form with the north London club sat in third place in the league with 13 points from their opening six matches.
Arsenal face newly promoted Burnley next and they will see it as a good opportunity to continue their run.
