The 28-year-old, who can play as a left winger or at left-back, has struggled with fitness problems since joining the Cottagers from Sunderland last summer, making 12 appearances this season.

Richardson has been capped eight times for England but the last of those appearances came in 2006.

He is back from a calf injury for Saturday's trip to his old club at the Stadium of Light and Jol hopes the ex-Manchester United man can start getting back to his best.

The manager said: "Kieran has been injured a bit but he is back now and will be involved in the squad. He is a versatile player who can play on the left, in midfield and left-back.

"He is a good player and has all the qualities.

"He had a good season with Steve Bruce at Sunderland when he was left-back, and should be terrific here.

"You can give him the licence there to express himself and he will be good, I have no doubt about that."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
