Theo Walcott is already targeting three points at Vicarage Road after Arsenal picked up a solitary point on the road against Leicester City.
After scoring against Liverpool last week, the England forward kept his starting place for the trip to the King Power Stadium, but his best efforts were fruitless in a tight encounter.

- 'Clean sheet was vital after last week'
- 'We could've got more from that'
"I think if you look at the balance of the game, it started to open out towards the last 10 minutes. When we look back at this game we will see it as a fair result," he told Arsenal Player.
"We’ve come to the champions and we know it’s not going to be easy. Not many people beat them. Only two teams, us being one of them, beat them last year.
"We want to have a similar sort of performance to when we last played Watford away. It doesn’t matter how we play, as long as we get the three points.
"Leicester know how to defend very well and like to put pretty much the whole team behind the ball, so it’s difficult to break them down. We had chances to score but sadly we failed to do that.
"We don’t want teams getting away from us [in the title race], but it’s only two games in," he added.
"We’ve got a nice run of games now and we’ve got to think about all of the positives from today. Watford is going to be another tough game because every game is this season, so it’s going to be very difficult.
"Each team gets better each year. We want to have a similar sort of performance to when we last played Watford away. It doesn’t matter how we play, as long as we get the three points."
More polls to come during the season
