Arsene Wenger must start Theo Walcott in this Saturday’s FA Cup final with Aston Villa or risk losing him to another club over the summer says Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas telling Sky Sports that it is time he made the England forward the main man in the Gunners team.
“If Wenger plays Walcott through the middle, then Arsenal win the FA Cup and Theo re-signs for the club, it’s that simple.
“Giroud has been poor and Wenger has been giving people their opportunities in FA Cup. Now it’s Theo’s chance.
“He looks sharp and hungry, Wenger has held him back and unleashed him against West Brom. At 26 and fully fit again, Theo is ready to be a top-class player and must start on Saturday.”
