Podolski scored twice during Arsenal's 3-1 win over West Ham on Tuesday.

Podolski was dominant Tuesday playing up front with Olivier Giroud, scoring his fifth and sixth goals of the Premier League season. Podolski is on quite a run recently, scoring three goals and assisting on two others in his last four Premier League appearances.

Podolski scored in the 73rd minute of Arsenal's draw against Swansea City on Tuesday and also produced an assist.

Podolski came on as a second-half substitute and didn't take long to put Arsenal on the board. Then, the German international set up the go-ahead goal just a minute later. Although Podolski boasts 11 goals on the season, just four of those have come in the Premier League and Tuesday's assist was his first of the year.

Podolski's strike in the 47th minute proved the difference in Sunday's 2-1 FA Cup victory over Liverpool.

Podolski filled the stat sheet everywhere on this evening, firing three shots (two on target) and committing four fouls, one which gifted Liverpool a penalty kick. Podolski has shown respectable results over the past few weeks when asked to play, but he hasn't carved out a dedicated starting role just yet.

Podolski said that he never should have left Bayern Munich to return to Cologne in 2009, reports the Daily Mail.

Podolski feels like he rushed home to Cologne when he could have endured some more time in Munich to break into the first team. He added that he might still be at Bayern today had he not made the decision to take the switch.

Podolski had just one shot, wide of the mark, in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Podolski was given a chance to start on the flank but didn't do much with the opportunity. He eventually departed the match in the 72nd minute, as the Gunners opted for Tomas Rosicky's defensive chops and experience. It will be interesting to see how soon Podolski gets another extended run, given the flat effort here.

Podolski scored two first-half goals as Arsenal routed Coventry City in the FA Cup on Friday, 4-0.

The first goal came on an inspired left-flank run, the second score a header at the right post. Podolski collected five shots in all (though only two hit the target) and was a consistent factor for his 71-minute stint.

Podolski played the final 22 minutes against Fulham and collected two shots (one on goal).

The Gunners held a decided advantage for the entire second half, and Podolski was involved in some of the better sequences. He still doesn't have a dedicated spot on this deep roster, but he should find his way to the pitch more often than not.
