Theo Walcott scored the lone goal as Everton beat Newcastle 1-0 at Goodison Park on Monday.
Sam Allardyce's side were unchanged from their draw with Swansea City at the weekend and found chances hard to come by in the first-half of the mid-table encounter. However, the Everton went on the offensive after the break and broke the deadlock in the 51st minute. Yannick Bolasie's deep cross from the right wing found Walcott, who controlled with a cushioned touch before smashing into the roof of the net from 10 yards out. The goal was Walcott's third since joining Everton in January from Arsenal. Newcastle pressed for an equalizer and created a few chances late in the match, but Everton held on to earn their first win in four match matches. The victory bring Everton up to eighth in the table, one point above Leicester City and four points above tenth-placed Newcastle. Apr 23 - 5:33 PM

Theo Walcott is expected to be available for trip to Stoke next weekend despite limping off during the 2-0 win over Brighton.

There were initial concerns that the winger had suffered a muscular strain – possibly calf or hamstring – after he pulled up chasing down a Gylfi Sigurdsson through ball midway through the second half. Walcott was immediately replaced by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and walked straight down the tunnel. But, speaking post-match, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed the problem was fatigue-related [cramp] "so he should be okay". The Everton boss also explained that Morgan Schneiderlin was absent from the matchday squad because of illness while teammate Idrissa Gueye came down with the same bug overnight and couldn’t join the group on Saturday. Sigurdsson completed 90 minutes, however, he will be assessed after taking a whack on the knee, although initial reports suggest it isn’t anything serious.

Shouts of "Theo, Theo!" rang throughout Goodison Park in Everton's 2-1 win against Leicester City thanks to the club's newest signing.

Walcott arrived at the club two weeks ago today and has wasted no time in getting back to his old self with the change of scenery. After recording an assist in his Everton debut over the weekend in the FA Cup, the former Arsenal winger scored both of the club's goals on Wednesday within 14 minutes of each other. Starting in the 25th minute, Gylfi Sigurdsson came away with a misplaced ball and sent a low cross to Walcott in front of goal for the opener. And then in the 39th, Walcott doubled the lead by latching onto a Michael Keane header at the back post. More good news for Everton came in the return of Seamus Coleman, who missed 10 months with a broken leg injury.

Everton officially unveiled its newest signing in Arsenal winger Theo Walcott in a deal worth more than £20 million.

A move finally materialized for Walcott, after a year of rumors, in a season where he has only made six Premier League appearances. The 28-year-old leaves Arsenal after nearly 12 years in North London and becomes Everton's second signing of the season after Besiktas' Cenk Tosun. "I’m very ambitious and I’ve come here because I want the Club to push to the next level," Walcott said. "And with the players that have come in, I feel like the next level can be reached. I’m very excited to be starting a new chapter and I felt this was the right place for me to be. The manager is very ambitious and I feel like the Club is going in the right direction."

Everton is set to make another winter signing with Theo Walcott expected to leave Arsenal this week.

The clubs have reportedly reached a £20 million agreement that would send Walcott to Merseyside after more than a decade with the Gunners. The winger arrived at the club's training grounds on Tuesday for a medical after a week of negotiations. Still, manager Sam Allardyce said he won't count his chickens before the deal is fully confirmed: "I don't get optimistic otherwise I get disappointed so we will wait and see," Allardyce said. I will be very excited and enthused once somebody, if it is not Theo then somebody else, has signed on the dotted line. In this window you don't get too optimistic because so many things can happen in a short space of time."

With contract negotiations still on the rocks, Theo Walcott is now subject to interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

The Englishman has been a peripheral figure at Arsenal this term, finding himself omitted from match-day squads when Arsene Wenger has had all his attackers available for selection. The winger is also yet to start a Premier League game this season. Everton are believed to be lining up a £20 million bid for Walcott as Sam Allardyce wants to add pace to The Toffee's attack. Walcott could also return to his boyhood club Southampton but the struggling south coast side will have to allay the player's fears that they may end the season getting relegated.

Theo Walcott has been a peripheral figure for Arsenal in the Premier League and he will get even further from the action as he misses the Week 18 match with Newcastle due to a groin injury.

Presumably, Walcott injured his groin in training but, given his injury history, it is possible that it was just getting out of bed in the morning. Such have been the struggles that the former Southampton youth product has faced in his years at Arsenal. The player has hopes of engineering a move away from the Emirates in January in an effort to get more playing time. Hopefully, he will get healthy soon and find a happy home for the second half of the season that will see him contribute in a meaningful way on the pitch.

Theo Walcott has fallen ill and will miss Arsenal's Week 13 match against Burnley.

The Arsenal forward has not been starting regularly so there isn't a great deal of impact with him missing what should be only a single match. Danny Welbeck is available again so Welbeck will likely be the first attacker off the bench on Sunday.

Arsenal scored three first half goals and cruised to a 4-2 victory over BATE Borisov with a largely reserve and youth side in Europa League action.

Shkodran Mustafi was the only regular starter to feature as Arsenal played to a comfortable win over in Barysaw, Belarus on Thursday. The fact that Arsene Wenger could leave most of his first team at home will be of significant comfort as the trip to Eastern Europe late in the week is frequently difficult for Premier League sides. That he could field a side with Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Jack Wilshere, Per Mertesacker, Rob Holding, and David Ospina along with Mustafi without exhausting his first team is a good omen for Arsenal's fortunes in the group stage of the Europa League. Arsenal's goals came through Walcott (9, 22), Holding (25), and Giroud (49) with Giroud's being his 100th for the club from the penalty spot.

Theo Walcott became an Arsenal centurion scoring the Gunners' second goal as they ended Sutton United's Cinderella story in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

It has been a long time coming for Walcott who started the season on fire only to be stalled by a familiar foe, injuries. The Southampton youth product caused a distraction that helped Lucas Perez's drive from the corner of the 18-yard box find the net for the opener. It was then Walcott's turn to take a bow as he scored his 100th goal in an Arsenal uniform. The Gunners' reward for beating Sutton United is a date at the Emirates with another non-league opponent in Lincoln City. It should be clear sailing to the semi-finals for the Gunners.

Theo Walcott scored a hat trick and Arsenal demolished Southampton at St. Mary's 5-0 in the FA Cup.

Arsenal went out of the EFL Cup to Southampton earlier this season and lost their trip to St. Mary's 4-0 last season. It was a reversal of fortune as Danny Welbeck scored the Gunners' first two and Walcott scored the final three in a match that was never in doubt.

Theo Walcott will make his long-awaited return on Saturday when Arsenal face Southampton in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

After what was initially described as a "minor" calf injury by Arsène Wenger in December, the 27-year-old has spent more than a month on the sidelines. However, the Arsenal manager confirmed on Thursday that "he is back in the squad" and likely to be given game time ahead of the Premier League encounter with Watford three days later. Per Mertesacker and Mathieu Debuchy will also rejoin the main group on Friday but the Gunners will be without Granit Xhaka following his sending off last weekend: "He’s not naturally a great tackler. He doesn’t master the technique. I would encourage him to stay on his feet," Wenger said following his dismissal for a lunge on Steven Defour. He also confirmed Carl Jenkinson could still move "he only has to agree personal terms [with [Palace]" while Gabriel "has been convincing at right-back" which would allow Debuchy to leave in the January window.

After nearly a month of being out of action, Theo Walcott faces uncertainty over his role once he is healthy again.

The prognosis for Theo Walcott's return from injury has been consistently moving back. What was originally categorized as a one-match absence has now swelled to nearly a month. With Olivier Giroud red hot playing as a center forward and Alexis demanding a spot somewhere every week, Arsene Wenger will have to decide if Walcott will move immediately back into the line-up on his return. Walcott was off to a blistering start but Alex Iwobi has played well and Danny Welbeck has also returned since Walcott went out injured.

After being a late scratch with a calf injury on Boxing Day, Theo Walcott won't be quite ready for the club's next match against Crystal Palace.

By indicating that "he will still be short" in reference to Walcott he doesn't seem to be ruling the attacker out for Match Week 20 on the 3rd against Bournemouth. It might be that anything that rules Walcott out for New Years Day might also carry over two additional days but Wenger is at least not ruling it out. Arsene Wenger didn't indicate if Olivier Giroud would maintain his starting spot after netting the winner on Boxing Day with Alexis taking Walcott's spot as a wide attacker. The alternative is Alexis reverting to a central role with Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain flanking Mesut Ozil.

Arsene Wenger is hoping Theo Walcott will be back on New Year’s Day after he missed the narrow victory over West Brom due to a "small calf problem."

The Gunners made two changes for the Boxing Day clash at the Emirates as Olivier Giroud came in for his first league start of the season to lead the Arsenal attack. That meant Alexis Sanchez was forced to drop a little deeper, filling the void left by Walcott, to sit alongside Alex Iwobi and Mesut Ozil in a 4-2-3-1. Kieran Gibbs was another surprise starter, as the error prone Nacho Monreal made way, although the Spanish full-back did see out the game as Gibbs was replaced on 71 minutes after he was "kicked on the knee." Walcott could return on January 1 while Gibbs will be assessed over the next 24-48hrs. A decision on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who injured his hamstring during the defeat at the Etihad in game week 17, will be made nearer to kick off.
