Arsenal winger Walcott promises different season for the Gunners

Arsenal Jack Wilshere Newcastle Transfer News

And Walcott, who has faced the Bosnia worldwide in training throughout the close season, explained how the "tough unit" would not need too much time to acclimatise himself to the physical aspects of English football.

"You've got to take advantage when you can and Sead, who looks an absolute tank", Walcott said. He is one tough unit to get past.

'We know what we want to do this season.

"Honestly, he is an absolute animal". I'm backing him to have a good season. You can just tell he looks after himself well. He eats the right food and he's professional. You can see the power he's got when he's got the ball, his pace and everything. He's quite wide as well.

Walcott, however, is feeling poised ahead of the new Premier League season and revealed the whole squad are relishing the challenge ahead. "This league is the best and I think he could be one of the best in this league".

He said: "We'll let the people talk on the outside". We know what we have to do this season. We know what we need to do this season. We do like a good challenge and it'll be different for us this year. The number of key players we have in all sorts of positions, they're going to supply for him and Oli as well. It's how we react.

"We have to focus on our strengths".

"We are starting to learn this new system that we used in the last 10 games last season. It is working for now and we will stick with it". Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has backed another new signing, Alexandre Lacazette, to shine.

The France forward, signed for £46.5 million ($60.6 million) from Lyon, hit the post against Chelsea, but that was the highlight of a largely anonymous display.

"He's a goalscorer and he is going to score goals for this club".

The Foxes travel to the Emirates and Arsenal are hopeful they will have several of their first-team stars fit enough to play.

Arsenal get their Premier League campaign underway when they host Leicester City on Friday, with Lacazette aiming to get off the mark on his debut in the English top flight.
