Arsenal entertain high-flying Southampton at the Emirates Stadium this weekend looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Boss Arsene Wenger confirmed on Thursday afternoon that Theo Walcott is back in the squad after recovering from an abdominal strain, so I’d like to see the winger come straight back in to the team as we’ve badly missed his pace in recent weeks.
