Theo Walcott: “We managed to get a result today”

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott might have had a rather poor outing today at Old Trafford, but that didn’t stop the England international from celebrating what could prove to be a rather useful point earned away at a destination where the Gunners left empty handed last season.

Beaten 3-2 last year at Old Trafford, Arsenal failed to be much of an attacking threat all game, and in the end were probably rather relieved to leave Manchester with a share of the spoils thank to Olivier Giroud’s 89th minute header.

Walcott, so often the spokesman for Arsenal after games this season, told Sky Sports: “I think we maybe deserved more based on our first half performance but they came at us in the second half and maybe a draw was a fair result.”

The pacey forward added, “In years gone by this was a very tough place for us to play and we managed to get a result today.”
