Theo Walcott mocks Tottenham once again as Arsenal players parade around the pitch

The England forward re-enacted his '2-0' gesture

The last time Theo Walcott was seen on a football pitch, he was mocking Tottenham.

Upon the Arsenal forward's return to the turf on Sunday he was at it again.

The England striker was seriously injured during an FA Cup meeting between the north London rivals in January. As he was stretchered off past the visiting fans to the Emirates, he held up his hands to signal the 2-0 scoreline.

It infuriated the Spurs supporters with some pelting Walcott with coins.

However, it would seem the ire Walcott attracted last time wasn't enough to put him off repeating the gesture following Arsenal's 1-0 win over West Brom.

Two of the four ambulance workers that helped Theo Walcott were Tottenham fans


After Arsenal's last game of the season at the Emirates the players took a stroll around the pitch to applaud their fans during which Walcott took the opportunity to tease the Gunners' local rivals.

It appeared to be made in light of Tottenham losing to West Ham by the same 2-0 scoreline on Saturday.


The injury suffered by Walcott will keep him out of this summer's World Cup, with the 25-year-old expected to back early next season.
