Mikel Arteta could return from injury for Arsenal's Premier League game against Stoke City this weekend.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the midfielder will be evaluated on Saturday to see whether he will be in contention to make his first appearance of the season.

"The only player who could come back is Arteta," Wenger told reporters on Friday.

"He is back in full training today [and] a decision will be made tomorrow morning.

"He is a leader - we are happy to have him back."

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott had earlier said he was confident that the will challenge for honours this season, and Wenger added: "I believe we have a chance [to win the Premier League].

"My full energy has to be on making sure we grab that chance.

"[But] it's too early to assess who will be in the fight [for the title] and who will not be in the fight."
