The 25-year-old suffered nasty injury against North London rivals Tottenham at the start of last year, one that kept him out of action for nearly ten months.

He finally made his return to action during Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Burnley on November 1st, but a groin injury sustained while on international duty meant his full return would have to wait.

Although the England international looked a little rusty during the game against Hull City on Sunday, he made a number of excellent runs and had a number of good chances.

Wenger believes it will take a while for him to regain his sharpness however, and doesn’t want to see pressure piled upon the recently returned star.

“You cannot expect much [from Walcott yet], but fitness-wise he was good,” he said.

“Theo had good chances, made some good runs. He has to get used to contact again and that will take a little bit of time.”
