Marco’s Maverick – GW24 – Theo Walcott

Apologies for last week, a busy schedule meant I didn’t have enough time to pen an article. Gameweek 22 yielded an assist from the bench for my pick Andros Townsend and proved the myth you can score points from players you don’t actually believe in.

We switch over to the other side of North London for this pick and surprisingly 0.9% owned Theo Walcott. A long spell on the sidelines since the now infamous North London derby win against their rivals has passed and now the rematch is upon us and the chance for either side to get revenge is in full sight.

With Alexis Sanchez seemingly ruled out by Wenger the gunners left in the shadows could now fill the limelight. With Sanchez at 11.3m and Walcott at 9m theres a whole lot of value to be had if Theo can produce on a regular basis. With Giroud having scored five in six and the tendancy for goals in this most volatile of fixtures Theo could be once again giving the spurs faithful some banter come full time.
