Congratulations to Theo Walcott who this week scored his 100th goal in an Arsenal shirt against FA Cup opponents Sutton United.  Theo pulled off the century with a close-range finish against the non-league side on his 370th appearance for the Gunners.

Walcott is up to 15 goals for the season in all competitions, making the 2016/17 campaign has already become his second most successful after joining Arsenal from Southampton at the age of 16 for a meager £5 million price tag.

This makes Walcott the 18th player in Arsenal history to reach the milestone, earning praise from manager Arsene Wegner, and expressed his delight at the achievement after the game.

Incredibly, 92 of Theo’s goals have been scored inside the penalty box (talk about poachers) with 79 being scored by his preferred right foot. Walcott now joins a star-studded hundred club that includes the likes of Thierry Henry, Ian Wright and Cliff Bastin, this is made even more impressive when considering that most of his Arsenal career has been spent on the  wings.

Congratulations Theo, keep the goals coming!
