Player Profile (HORSES FOR COURSES): Theo Walcott


POSITION: WINGER/WIDE FORWARD/STRIKER
FORMER CLUBS: SOUTHAMPTON
CURRENT FPL PRICE: £9.0 MILLION

The former Southampton man is gradually getting closer to fitness and perhaps the International break sees an opportunity for FPL managers to think ahead about their up and coming transfers. Walcott could just be one of those to mull over in the coming weeks, although it remains to be seen when exactly when he will be available for selection or be able to start or have a full 90 minutes.
However, in the meantime, here is what the Arsenal number 14 is capable of when he is firing on all cylinders.
PREMIER LEAGUE GOALS 2013/14

VS MANCHESTER CITY (6-3) - 2
VS WEST HAM UNITED (1-3) - 2
VS CARDIFF CITY (2-0) - 1

PREMIER LEAGUE GOALS 2012/13

VS QPR (0-1) - 1
VS MANCHESTER UNITED (1-1) - 1
VS NEWCASTLE UNITED (7-3) - 3
VS WEST HAM UNITED (1-3 & 5-1) - 2
VS SPURS (5-2) - 1
VS EVERTON (1-1) - 1
VS CHELSEA (2-1) - 1
VS LIVERPOOL (2-2) - 1
VS WIGAN ATHLETIC (4-1) - 1

Walcott was one of only 4 players to reach double figures in goals and assists in the Premier League in 2012/13.

Walcott scored 5 Premier League goals from December to January last season before being sidelined for the rest of the season and being ruled out of the 2014 World Cup.

Please note that Theo Walcott has not played a Premier League match since January 1st 2014 or a competitive match since January 4th 2014 (FA Cup) therefore is more than likely to need match fitness.
