Theo Walcott claims that 'Teams will fear Arsenal' 

Theo Walcott has claimed that no team will want to come up against the Gunners in the last 16 of the Champions League following their 3-0 win over Olympiacos.

Arsene Wenger's side kept themselves in the competition with the victory in Piraeus and maintained their record of getting out of the group in each of the last 15 seasons.

Walcott has suggested that Arsenal will be a dangerous opponent in the knockout stages because they are capable of defeating any side when at their best.

"I'm sure none of them would like to play us after that result. It's the Champions League. Whoever you get in the draw is going to be difficult. You've seen teams struggle when they should go through and should be winning," he told The Telegraph.

"It's the way the set-up is now, even in the Premier League you see every team has got much better. It doesn't matter who we get, if we all contribute and play like that then we can beat anyone on our day.

"If we get a few of our players back as well then our squad will be even stronger than it is now." Arsenal were knocked out by AS Monaco in the last 16 in last season's competition.
