Theo Walcott says that drawing with Manchester United was a good result for Arsenal.

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has insisted that a draw with Manchester United will stand the club in good stead going into their final three games of the season.

The England international gave the Gunners an early lead, but a Robin van Persie penalty ensured that the match finished 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Despite now having Champions League qualification out of their own hands, Walcott is adamant that a point against the Premier League champions was a good result for his side.

"There are still three very important games left," Walcott told Sky Sports News. "We have just got to concentrate on ourselves.

"I think if you look back, both teams will think it was fair. Both teams didn't really want to lose the game. Overall, it will be a good point come the end of the season."

Arsenal's next game is at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
