Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes a contract extension for Theo Walcott can be pushed through sooner rather than later and maintains that is his focus rather than delving into the January transfer market.

Walcott saw several goalbound efforts blocked and also should have been given a penalty when nudged over by Chico in the second half before shooting wide.

“Let’s first try to finish the deal with Walcott,” he said. “I hope it will be soon, very, very soon now. I cannot tell you much more.”
