It’s a fact that football is one of the hardest sports to remain consistent at. Form can evade you at any moment and once it does it’s very hard to recover it No matter how hard you work sometimes it’s just not that easy to get things going for you once again.

It could be because the team is not playing, or you are still adjusting to life at a new club, or just pure bad luck. Last season there were certain players who had a terrible time on the pitch and did not look themselves whatsoever.

But this season they have got their mojo back and are back amongst the headlines. Here are 5 forgotten stars who are back in form

5) Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott for many years has been a player who looks like he is onto something big but in the end always disappoints. The English winger has already been at the club for 10 years, making him eligible for a testimonial.

But in terms of what he has achieved at the club and what he was expected to do after he burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old, critics and fans feel they have not seen the best of him. But this season something seems to be different about the way he is approaching his games.

There seems to be more determination about him and he looks sharper and fitter and hungrier in his play. Last year Walcott only managed 5 goals all campaign, a number he has already hit this season.

Even when he’s not scoring there is more purpose about his play and he seems to be making the right decisions as well. Theo had been criticized for being too unsure of what to do when the ball is at his feet and he used to end up losing possession several times last season.

But now all that seems to have been eradicated from his game. Walcott has 8 goals in 10 appearances in all competitions and you would imagine he will have a very important role to play if Arsenal are to finally break their Premier League drought.
