Walcott refuses to give up title dream

Arsenal have been written off as title challengers in recent weeks by many football fans but one man who refuses to give up the dream is Theo Walcott.

The young Arsenal and England winger has seen his side lose to Premier League title rivals Manchester United and Chelsea in successive weeks leaving them in third place, nine points behind the leaders.

Arsenal now face a crucial Premier League match against Liverpool on Wednesday night and defeat would mean they face a fight to hold on to third place as the Anfield side would be only two points behind.

Walcott has endured a troubled season and injuries have restricted his appearances, but he started the Chelsea defeat and claimed his side performed well at Stamford Bridge but failed to take their chances.

He told Arsenal TV Online that their Premier League title rivals are likely to drop points over the coming months but the Gunners need to concentrate on themselves and keeping picking up wins.

"We have to believe we are always in the title race, no matter where we are in the league. If we perform like we did at Chelsea, but take our chances, then we can beat anyone on our day," said the 20-year-old.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard stoked the fires ahead of the vital Premier league top four clash in an interview with Talksport. He said Arsenal are a "wounded animal" and his team will battle them all the way to the end of the season.
