Theo Walcott today celebrates 10 years at Arsenal and with it joins an elite club that have spent a decade at the club.

The England international becomes the first player since Dennis Bergkamp to reach the milestone and just the ninth to do so among those who at some point played for the club in the Premier League era.

Walcott, who has turned out over 300 times for the club, marked the occasion with a tweet that read: "Thank you to everyone who has supported me at the club, players, manager and the fans I can't thank you enough."

So how does the one-time fresh faced 16-year-old signed from Southampton compare to the other Gunners who totalled a decade at the club? Here, we take a look at the others in the group and what they achieved...

Who do you think was the best from the group above? Let us know who and why in the comments below.
