‘Theo Walcott, forever a Gooner’: Arsenal fans delight as former star scores against bitter rivals Tottenham

Theo Walcott did his old club a huge favour by putting Everton in front against Arsenal’s top-four rivals Tottenham.

The former Gunners star has long-been Spurs’ nemesis – remember his cheeky 2-0 gesture during a 2014 FA Cup clash?

Walcott scored more than 100 goals during his time at Arsenal, and many Gunners fans celebrated his latest strike as though he was still their player.
