Walcott: Current Arsenal squad better than Invincibles

Better than the famed Arsenal Invincibles of 2003/04 that boasted a strike pairing of Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp — players who have been immortalised with statues in North London.

Theo Walcott believes that the Gunners’ forward line this season could be the best in the club’s history.

Arsenal’s 2014/2015 vintage boasts the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Walcott, Oliver Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Joel Campbell up front.

Walcott told Arsenal Player: “When I came here, it was (Robert) Pires and (Freddie) Ljungberg, Bergkamp, Thierry and (Jose Antonio) Reyes — that’s some attacking force as well.

“I think this squad probably does beat it, but we need to prove it first.

“When we go and achieve a little bit more than winning the FA Cup, then I think we can stand up and say this is the best attacking line up we’ve ever had.”

Time to back up the talk with trophies, Gunners.
