Arsenal star Theo Walcott eyes Premier League title tilt after FA Cup triumph.


The Gunners made it back-to-back wins in the world's oldest domestic cup competition after running riot against Aston Villa at Wembley.


Theo Walcott has set his sights on the Premier League title after Arsenal clinched the FA Cup with victory over Aston Villa.

The Gunners made it back-to-back wins in the world's oldest domestic cup competition as Arsene Wenger became the first post-war manager to lift the trophy six times.

Walcott set Arsenal on their way to a 4-0 victory with a fine opening goal before Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud added gloss to the scoreline after the break.

The forward has urged his team-mates not to rest on their laurels and wants them to mount a title challenge next campaign

He said: "We just need to start well in the Premier League next year. This is one of the best squads we have had at Arsenal so we should be achieving more

"But that's two FA Cup wins now so the Premier League has to be the next target for us."

Walcott missed last season's Wembley win against Hull through injury but was preferred to Giroud in attack this time.

The England international paid tribute to his boss for giving him the nod.

He added: "I want to thank the manager for picking me and having faith in me and hopefully I repaid him. I missed all this last year. To be part of it this year is a dream come true.

"My family are here and I have worked so hard, as has everyone to do this. I also want to thank the physios and everyone who has looked after me. This is for them."
