On Wednesday night Theo Walcott will try to do what he's never done before - score a goal in a Premier League North London derby.

The Arsenal forward could have a major role to play if he lines up in his usual position on the right with his former Southampton colleague and newly-crowned PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale expected to start on Tottenham's left.

In an exclusive interview with Arsenal TV Online, Theo looked ahead to that intriguing battle and a "massive" game for Arsenal.

He discussed:

  • what it's like to play in the derby
  • why it will be more intense than ever
  • the story of the 3-2 reverse at Emirates
  • 'owing the fans' for that defeat
  • what it means to the supporters
  • how Tottenham have improved
  • his personal battle with Gareth Bale

Subscribers can now watch this interview 'on demand' on Arsenal TV Online.
