Theo Walcott believes Arsenal are on track to getting back to their best after seeing off West Ham to pick up their first league win since February.

The forward hit the second goal in what proved to be a routine 3-0 victory, with Mesut Ozil opening the scoring and substitute Olivier Giroud wrapping up a vital three points for the Gunners.

It was just a fourth win in 11 games in all competitions for Arsenal, with continued protests against Arsene Wenger adding to an unhappy backdrop of late.

"We had to work for it, it has obviously been a challenging few weeks to be honest," he said. "When we got the first goal the nerves went away and then we just relaxed and played our football and hopefully it is going to breed a bit more confidence.

"Everyone just needs to remember how good we are as a team, as individuals. It is coming into motion, you saw some signs at Man City and more today and hopefully it is going to go on and on," he added ahead of Monday's clash at London rivals Crystal Palace.
