Theo Walcott could make his much anticipated return from injury against Arsenal’s fiercest rivals.

According to the Daily Mirror, Walcott is on course to return for the Gunners against Tottenham on September 27. The season’s first north London derby takes place at the Emirates Stadium on a Saturday evening.

FA Cup injury

And Walcott, who suffered the knee injury that has plauged him all summer against Tottenham in the FA Cup last January, could step back out onto the field for the first time against the Lilywhites.

He antagonised the Spurs fans with his 2-0 hand gesture as he was stretchured off that January day, and was pelted with coins.

The 25-year-old has been a big miss for the Gunners, and returns to a team that has been bolstered by the summer acquisitions of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.

Rapid attack

With Walcott back in the squad, Arsene Wenger could plausibly field one of the fastest teams in the Premier League. An attack boasting the likes of Walcott, Sanchez, Welbeck and Ozil is built for the counter attack and Arsenal fans will be excited to see them all back on the pitch for the first time together.

It will be his first game for eight months, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Gunners as they face a tough early season fixture list.

Having seen off Besiktas and booked their place in the Champions League, Arsenal must follow the Spurs game with the visit of Turkish giants Galatasaray before travelling to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea later that same week.
