Theo Walcott can feel Arsenal's confidence growing and believes the 5-2 hammering of Tottenham showed their credentials.
The Gunners trailed to Emmanuel Adebayor's early goal at the Emirates Stadium but after the Arsenal old boy was sent off they roared back to win 5-2.
Walcott, who rounded off the win late on, told Sky Sports 2: "We showed people how good we are.
"It'll give us tremendous spirit and we've got a lot of players back to fitness and everybody's very confident."
The dismissal of Adebayor, for a reckless lunge at Santi Cazorla, was undoubtedly crucial but Walcott backed referee Howard Webb's decision.
"I didn't really see it but I think he did go in quite two-footed and the referee's made that decision," the England international added.
