Walcott has not extended his contract at Arsenal.
This Saturday, from 16 hours, Arsenal defies Crystal Palace on behalf of the 26th day of the Premier League. And for this London derby, Arsene Wenger decided to leave Theo Walcott on the bench at kick-off, like Jack Wilshere, who returns from injury.
