Arsenal star Theo Walcott has praised the impact of the club’s new signings following their Community Shield triumph over Chelsea on penalties.
The Gunners nearly went ahead in the match but new boy Alexandre Lacazette was unlucky to see a shot hit the post, but in the end another summer transfer, Sead Kolasinac, was the hero as he scored their equaliser following a Victor Moses opener.
And Theo Walcott was mightily impressed by the performances of his new team-mates.
He told talkSPORT: “The manager will be the judge but Sead [Kolasinac] is an absolute animal. Not many players are going to want to face him this season that’s for sure.
“And [Alexandre] Lacazette nearly scored in the first-half, it’s just a glimpse of what he can do.”
