Arsenal's Theo Walcott hails 'absolute tank' Sead Kolasinac

Arsenal's Theo Walcott hails 'absolute tank' Sead Kolasinac”

It seems that Olivier Giroud got a taste of what's to come during the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.

Kolasinac is usually a left-back, but he showed his versatility, replacing the injured Per Mertesacker at centre-back and helping the often leaky Gunners defence subdue Chelsea. "He had a great game and everyone who came in as a sub helped us keep our quality on the pitch".

The former Lyon frontman has impressed during pre-season, scoring twice for the Gunners.

"Sead looks an absolute tank".

'Honestly, he's an absolute animal, ' said Theo Walcott. With the competition for the forward line now, it's a healthy debate for the manager to have and I think everyone's looking forward to the new season'.

"Alexandre Lacazette looks like he will definitely feel at home in English football", he told BBC Sport. He is a professional.

'You can see the power when he's got the ball, and his pace. He's quite wide, as well'.

Conte cut a miserable figure during his post-match press conference and refused to answer a question about whether he has the squad in place to defend Chelsea's Premier League title. 'He could be one of the best in this league, and he's going to get fitter, stronger and quicker'.

"It is going to be different this year". We can't really dwell on the past anymore. We're slowly learning and getting better'. "It is working for now and we will stick with it".

Thierry Henry has talked about the recent arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, and has claimed he will be the first ever player to be first-choice for his club, while his benched team-mate is favoured for his global side.

France worldwide Lacazette left Lyon to sign for the Gunners, where his pedigree appears to be huge.

But that doesn't mean we shouldn't credit him for an excellent display. We had some bad starts recently, the last four years, in the first game of the Premier League. "The fans will be up for it", he said.
