Premier League news: Arsenal Theo Walcott said the team wanted to step on the gas during Premier League 2011-2012 started, in August, because they will face other tough teams.
The Gunners will begin his adventure with a trip to Newcastle United. The next week, Walcott and his friends will immediately be faced with major rivals, Manchester United and Liverpool thereafter.
It's nice to immediately get tough matches like this, because they may not be as strong as before the end of the season, said Walcott.
Manchester United tends to start with a slow journey, but they take so many points in the mid and late season. So, hopefully we can beat them in the 'bad' they are. We are a team of very fit, so we'll be ready at the beginning season.
Every match will be difficult in the Premier League. Many teams look very strong right now and not easy to win at home or away. However, I will be ready and I'm sure other players also like it, said Walcott.
