Theo Walcott forces Arsenal fans to eat humble pie as he misses a penalty and scores within 70 seconds


Arsenal's Theo Walcott did one of the swiftest zero-to-hero acts we've ever seen against Liverpool as he missed a penalty then scored just over a minute later.

The England international won a penalty, saw his spot-kick saved by Simon Mignolet and then made up for it with a neat finish that was so much harder than the one he just fluffed.

The whole thing was so Theo it hurt.

And it led to a lot of people having to do some swift backtracking on Twitter - even if a lot of it was done with tongue firmly in cheek.

Hats off, though, to the people who were brave enough to keep their Theo criticisms on their timelines. We reckon a whole lot more went down this route...
