Arsene Wenger believes young English players could provide future success for Arsenal
England star Theo Walcott got his name on the scoresheet as Arsenal beat Reading 5-2 at the Madejski Stadium on Monday evening.
Walcott, who has 30 caps for his country, scored Arsenal's fifth with a composed finish, cutting in from the right and finding the far corner.
There were also impressive displays for Arsenal by Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs, with the latter grabbing two assists in the first-half.
And Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that quartet, along with full-back Carl Jenkinson, could provide the basis for the club's future.
"I believe we have a good core of young English players," said Wenger.
"We couldn't keep the good core of young foreign players. And I hope we will be capable to build a team around all these young English players who can achieve something together.”
