LONDON (AP)

Arsene Wenger hopes Theo Walcott will bring a different dimension to Arsenal's attack when the winger returns this weekend after a two-month layoff to recover from an abdominal injury.

Walcott is available for Saturday's home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team.

Wenger said Friday that ''he can always give you a different option in the game and that is of course vital. ... Theo has different qualities to other players and I am very pleased that he is back.''
