New, comments

With his return, the social media-savvy winger/striker will bring some merriment to London Colney and some welcome lineup options for Arsene Wenger.

Lukas Podolski was last on the pitch for Arsenal in August; that will change soon.

Some good news on the injury front to report -- Lukas Podolski, the German international with a fondness for Twitter and Instagram posting, has returned to full training after more than three months out of action with a hamstring injury suffered in an August 27 match against Fenerbahce. (Remember them?)

As is his way, he took to his favorite social media platforms to let it be known.

Podolski will also be part of the German contingent for Arsenal, including Per Mertesacker and Mesut Özil, haunting American players' dreams as a result of yesterday's World Cup draw, placing Germany and the U.S. in a loaded Group G also including Ghana and Portugal.

That's not to say all the injury news out of the Arsenal camp is happy -- the hamstring injury that kept Bacary Sagna out of the mid-week match against Hull will also sideline him for tomorrow's match with Everton; it will again be up to Carl Jenkinson to help the rest of the Arsenal back-line slow down Romelu Lukaku (Everton and Chelsea's best striker) in the showdown at the Emirates.
