Arsenal Star ‘Confident’ Injury Is NOT Serious, Should Face Spurs

By on September 17, 2014

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere is confident his ankle injury is not serious, according to the Mirror.

We brought you the news last night that Arsene Wenger had confirmed after our 2-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund that Wilshere had picked up an ankle injury.

The boss told Arsenal.com in his post-match debrief:

Jack Wilshere has turned his ankle, it’s difficult to say how bad it is because I am a bit cautious, normally it’s not very bad but because of his history I’m a bit cautious. Apart from that no player I took off was injured.

Wilshere went down holding his ankle during the closing stages of the game and although he did manage to complete the 90 minutes, it appears he has picked up another knock.

Understandably the boss is being cautious with Jack due to his past ankle problems, with the 23-year-old spending the best part of two years on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on both ankles.

However, the Mirror claim that the midfielder is ‘confident’ the latest injury is nothing serious. It’s thought he’s likely to miss the Aston Villa game this weekend and I’d expect Arsene won’t risk him in the Capital One Cup, but Jack is expected to be available for the visit of Tottenham on the 27th.
