Lukas Podolski made a goalscoring return from injury as Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 on Boxing Day.
Podolski stepped off the bench to net Arsenal's third, after which Arsene Wenger told the club's official website:
He has been out for four months, he has not played one game. I try to get him slowly back to competitiveness and he has shown he can have a huge impact because he can score and make goals - he can give assists.
