Theo Walcott has warned against writing off Arsenal's Premier League title chances.
The Gunners have bounced back from successive defeats to Chelsea and Manchester United to remain on the coat-tails of their main title rivals.
Saturday's 2-0 victory over Sunderland kept them six points behind leaders Chelsea and Walcott does not accept that the north London club have now missed the boat in terms of their title challenge.
"People tend to write us off," said the England star. "We stay in the background and do our own thing. We're just six points behind Chelsea. It's looking good.
"It was frustrating in the early stages of the season with results not going our way, but it's coming together now."
Speaking about his own form after only his sixth league start of an injury-ravaged season, Walcott added: "I'm starting to get there now, it's just getting that final ball sorted.
"I'm not looking too far towards the World Cup at all to be honest. I'm just concentrating on Arsenal with all the big games ahead of us because I've not really featured much for my club this season.
"I just need to stay fully fit and if I do hopefully I'll have a chance of getting on the plane."
