Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal fans not to expect Gunners legend Thierry Henry to hit the ground running after returning to the club on a short-term loan.

The 34-year-old will go straight into the squad for Monday's FA Cup third-round clash against Leeds at the start of a six-and-a-half-week spell which will take in games against Manchester United, AC Milan and possibly the visit of Tottenham on February 26.

Wenger said: "Thierry will be involved against Leeds, but at the moment 90 minutes is a bit long for him because he has not played for a long time. He works hard, but he is a bit behind physically. In one or two weeks Thierry will be fine."
