‘Did I hear that correctly?’


ARSENAL fans were left baffled after former Gunner Theo Walcott said he wants the north London derby to finish a DRAW.

Despite spending 12-years playing for Arsenal, Walcott revealed he wanted to “sit on the fence” when picking a winner for the match.

The 33-year-old, now playing for Southampton, left some fans furious while appearing as a pundit for the game on Sky Sports.

Walcott revealed he wanted the crunch game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to end with the spoils shared.

He said: “Hopefully tonight, I’m playing on the fence, it’s going to be a nice little draw.”

A draw would keep the Gunners four points ahead of Spurs with two games left of the season to play, while a win would secure Champions League qualification.

And bewildered Arsenal fans were quick to take to social media in response to the claim from a man who played 398 times for Arsenal.

One angry supporter wrote: “Did I hear Theo Walcott correctly, he’s hoping for a draw ?!?! You f***ng what….”

Another added: “Why does Theo Walcott want a draw?”

While a third claimed: “Theo Walcott just said he wants a draw? Why’s he trying so hard to ruin his legacy at arsenal?”


Walcott though was quick to get fans back on side when discussing his vote for Players Player of the Year this season.

He had a brilliant answer when asked if he had voted for Son Heung-Min, who has scored 20 league goals this campaign.

“I appreciate a good footballer, and he is. He is fantastic… but I’ll be honest with you I cannot vote for a Tottenham player.”
