Theo Walcott added to the two goals he scored against BATE in the reversed tie, and the goal was more than he deserved after a fine display, in which I would definitely give him the Man of the Match award.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that the club have no intentions of letting forward Theo Walcott leave in the January transfer window and said he is hoping that the forward can fight for a spot in the first team for the remainder of the season, according to a report on the Telegraph.

Wenger disputed that during his press conference to preview Thursday night's Europa League clash with BATE Borisov.

Wenger is not keen to weaken the squad with the team fighting on four fronts, but admits that it will be hard to keep all his players happy. "You have always a certain way to translate the French into English that does not necessarily reflect the nuances of the subtle French language".

At least it is not backed by the numbers. "And that's what the players did", the Arsenal boss said. But competition is competition.

Wilshere played a neat ball inside to reach Walcott, whose low cross found Welbeck before Polyakov inexplicably smashed the ball past his goalkeeper from the centre of the six-yard box - as if Arsenal needed a hand.

'I have to consider the interest in the player, but dominant of that will be the interest of the club.
