Walcott joined Arsenal in 2006 from Southampton making his debut in August and scoring his first Gunners goal in the League Cup final against Chelsea in Cardiff in February 2007.
The 27-year-old’s strike is his 15th of the season, his best campaign in front of goal apart from 2012-13 when he grabbed 21 goals in all competitions.
The England international was named captain for the tie against Sutton at Gander Greeen Lane and becomes the 18th player to score 100 goals for the club in all competitions.
