Cape Town - Theo Walcott says Arsenal's goalless draw with Leicester City was a fair result in addition to stating that they need to get three points in their fixture against Watford.

The 27-year-old, who missed a penalty and scored a goal in the 4-3 loss to Liverpool, retained his starting-berth on the right-wing for Arsene Wenger's side, but was unable to help the Gunners break the deadlock.

"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 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."

Wenger's charges have one point from two games and languish in 12th-psotion in the latest standings, but Walcott believes it is too early for concern.

"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," he concluded.
