Walcott: We’re best in Europe

ARSENAL forward Theo Walcott believes the north London club are the best team in Europe in 2015.

Walcott, who has been limited to just 17 appearances for the Gunners this season following a long-term knee injury, has suggested that a fully fit Arsenal squad could win the Premier League title.

He said: “In this calendar year, we’ve been the best team in Europe. It’s the strongest the squad has been and everyone is staying fit as well. There aren’t many injuries in the squad, which is important. If we had an injury-free season, I think we could lift the title.”

Arsene Wenger's side have won 17 of their 21 games in all competitions this year, reaching the FA Cup final, but crashed out of the Champions League to Monaco in February. Barcelona are on course for a treble, having won 25 of their 28 games.
