The FA Want To Make Arsene Wenger The Next England Manager

"What will influence me the most is the fact that I feel I do well and can move this team forward".
Walcott is nearly certain to start this weekend's Premier League match against Burnley at Turf Moor, as he looks to build on the impressive partnership he has formed with Alexis Sanchez and Alex Iwobi in the Arsenal attack. "They are very unsafe on set pieces and on counter-attacks, so we have to prepare well".
He blocked bravely, linked play cleverly and, when his chances came, he had the determination and ruthlessness to take them.
The second half started in the same vein with Sanchez robbing Marek Suchy - much as he had Gary Cahill on Saturday - and nearly finding Ozil in the box.
He said: "It was a very good performance, it was important not to think about the Chelsea game and how well we did". We couldn't score the third goal.

The bridge which was made by 5,805,846 LEGO bricks got into Guinness World Record for the biggest LEGO brick structure ever made. At the event Bear Grylls , Sir Ben Ainslie and Zara Philips, who are long time users of Land Rover, were present.
But for now the Frenchman, who years ago revealed he had once rejected an offer to manage England, is fully focused on maintaining Arsenal's encouraging progress after they extended their unbeaten run to eight games.
With back-to-back matches against Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets to come, the Gunners have a great opportunity to try and take a stranglehold on top spot - vital to avoid drawing one of the favourites in the first knockout round. "If you take the best Englishmen and you see him play tonight it's hard to ignore him".
Walcott's double means he has now scored five goals in seven games, and Wenger said the attacker's form bodes well for his England hopes.
Wenger traditionally operates on a year-to-year basis these days and only decides whether he wants to continue as Arsenal's manager late in each season. "I will leave that with Gareth Southgate". "He assessed well where he stands and rectified well what he has to add to his game. That's down to him, 95 % down to him", Wenger said.
"You can tell our confidence from the way we start games and the intensity", he said. "That demands big focus and some leadership in the squad and as well some humility".
