Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has been criticised by the club's fans after he was asked to select his worst performance for the Gunners.

Walcott started the season as the club's No 1 striker but soon lost his place to Olivier Giroud after more injuries and poor form.

He's scored just four goals in 22 appearances this season and still only has one campaign in north London where he has hit double figures in the league, when he scored 14 Premier League goals in 2012-13.

Now 27, and with 42 England caps and almost 350 appearances for Arsenal, a section of the club's support is starting to turn on the player who has not really fulfilled his promise.

On a YouTube video released by Arsenal, a number of first-team players were asked to pick their best and worst individual performances for the club.

While Giroud was praised for his honesty - the French striker picked the awful Champions League defeat to Monaco last season where he missed a number of chances - Walcott came in for strong criticism.
