Theo Walcott has admitted that he and his Arsenal team-mates have held a player-only chat to talk about how to salvage the club's season. 

Speaking after the 4-0 FA Cup replay win over Hull City last night, the forward who scored twice, says the players have tried to talk things through behind closed doors.

"We are not going to lie. We know as a unit it has been tough and we all had a good chat among us behind closed doors, without even any of the coaches or the manager knowing about anything and I think it is important that as a team we have got it in us," he said.

The Gunners are eight points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City with nine games to go.
