The Arsenal and England international midfield star Jack Wilshere will not be having a very happy Christmas. Instead the Gunner will be cursing his luck on the injury front once more, because the Daily Mail are reporting that his long awaited return to the Arsenal first team has been put back once more.
After being ruled out just as the current season was about to get going, following a freak training ground accident, Wilshere was originally supposed to be fit again before the end of 2015, but now it appears that it will be at least another six weeks before Jack is back.
And even though this will still see him back before his club and country team mate Danny Welbeck, I think the news on Wilshere is a bigger blow for Arsenal. The reason is that with Cazorla, Coquelin and Rosicky also out, the chances of Arsene Wenger being able to give Mesut Ozil a decent rest are now much smaller.
This increases the risk of our main creative player picking up his own injury and even though he is only just back from his own spell on the sidelines, the same can be said of Aaron Ramsey. Surely this will force our manager into the transfer market. Wenger cannot ignore the problem of all these missing players if he seriously wants to make a concerted attack on the Premier League title, can he?
