Kim Little made her return from injury on Sunday in a 4-2 win over West Ham in the Women’s Super League.
The Scotland international played 90 minutes as captain - and even came close to scoring with two opportunities in the second half.
“I think having Kim on the teamsheet is always a good thing,” Joe Montemurro told Arsenal.com.
“It probably frightens the daylights out of the other team, which is great.
“Coming back from a long spell on the sidelines she needs time to find her rhythm, and I think the best way for her to do that is for her to play.”
