Fit-again striker Olivier Giroud can help offer Arsenal "different options", according to manager Arsene Wenger.

The France international has recovered quicker than expected from a fractured leg suffered when challenging for the ball in the closing stages of the 2-2 draw against Everton on August 23.

Wenger revealed Giroud could even be involved in tomorrow's home Premier League game against Manchester United, although the trip to West Brom on November 29 looks a more realistic target.

The Gunners boss is confident when he and fellow forward Theo Walcott are fully match fit, the Arsenal squad will have even more firepower at their disposal to add to the impressive form of summer signing Alexis Sanchez and former United frontman Danny Welbeck.
