Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger describes forward Theo Walcott as "a great player" following his performance against Schalke on Tuesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised forward Theo Walcott for his performance against Schalke in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Frenchman believes that the 23-year-old, who scored at the ​Veltins-Arena in their 2-2 draw, was one of the best players against the German club.

"Football performances are in every single game," he is quoted as saying by the BBC. "Theo did extremely well today; he was one of our best players.

"But he has been injured for a long time, injured with England, and comes back now. We know he is a great player."

Arsenal are currently second in Group B with seven points from four matches, one point behind leaders Schalke.
