How much longer can Theo Walcott retain his Everton spot?

Everton pair Theo Walcott and Gylfi Sigurdsson are the only outfield players to start every Premier League game so far this season.

Manager Marco Silva has clearly taken a liking to both of them, but for how much longer can Walcott stay in his good books?

Walcott joined the Merseyside club for £20million (Telegraph) in 2017 from Arsenal and has been a regular in the side since.

The 29-year-old has brilliant pedigree from his time with England and Arsenal, while the right-winger is still hungry to be playing regular football.

 

He made a decent start to the campaign under Silva with a couple of goals in the opening three games, but perhaps undeservedly has started in all 11 league games so far.

Walcott has gone off the boil in the past few matches and his final delivery into the penalty area has started to let him down.

Everton do have a whole host of options in wide areas if Silva wishes to rotate, but for instance young talent Ademola Lookman is yet to start a league match this season.

Silva is continuing to persist with the experience of Walcott for now and his side are preparing for a trip to Chelsea on Sunday.

But surely Walcott could do with his ending his current goal duck of eight league games imminently if he is to warrant a regular starting position.
