Arsenal forward Theo Walcott braced for thrilling title race

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott feels the title race the Gunners are currently leading is shaping up as the most exciting yet in the Premier League era.

Arsene Wenger's men reclaimed top spot with Sunday's 0-0 draw at Stoke, but they are only above second-placed surprise package Leicester on goal difference, while Manchester City are just a point worse off in third.

Tottenham and Manchester United, fourth and fifth respectively, also look to be still in the mix.

And Walcott said: "You can't tell what's going to happen, it's just so tight.

"With the amount of teams that could potentially win this league, it's probably going to be the most exciting Premier League for a neutral ever, I think. No one can call it but we're top and we can be proud of that at this moment in time.

"The mental strength in this dressing room's the strongest it's ever been."
