Wilshere on course to return in April for Arsenal – Hmmmm….

Arsenal are claimed to have told the Evening Standard’s James Olley that Jack Wilshere has not suffered an injury setback.

The England international has not featured in the Premier League since May of last year, after suffering a broken leg last summer, before suffering a number of set-backs.

Another delay to his return has been circling of late, but apparently Arsenal have told a reporter that this simply is not the case.

‘Arsenal insist Wilshere hasn’t suffered a setback in his recovery from injury as rumoured. Club say he’s progressing well,’ James Olley of the Evening Standard tweeted.

Wilshere will be expected to make his return next month, which could see him earn a summer call-up to the England international squad for the upcoming European Championships, with the prospect of being rather fresh for his country.

Santia Cazorla and Petr Cech are also expected to return early into April, and could prove to be key in the club’s final push to close the gap on league leaders Leicester City.

The Foxes are way out in front currently with 11 points in hand on us, although we have played a game less.

The leaders also have a tough run-in ahead, with difficult trips to Sunderland, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Our run in looks much more favourable, albeit the trip to Manchester City, although the Citizens have been awful of late, especially against the bigger teams, and we should not rule out an unlikely lunge up the table.

Of course I wouldn’t put money on our emphatic jump to the lead, but surely Leicester have to start getting nervous, and the teams they are coming up against have much more to lose.

Can Wilshere play a big role in helping us close the gap? Or should he be used sparingly and bring him back into the fold next season?

  1. Am just glad Cech and Carzola are both on course to come back soon….as for Wilshere, well I don’t believe we have missed him that much for me to get excited about his comeback

  2. If I were Jack Wilshere, I would have forfeited playing for club and country this season and focus to recover very well for next season campaign.

    It’s frustrating for Wilshere to be sidelined for 8 months. But Jack has to accept it and continues to deal with the prevailing issue on him.

    Jack shouln’t be forced or force himself back into competitive action when he Jack knows very well that his body is not that fully ready for competitive action. Such an undue return to competitive action could result to Jack picking up another bad injury again. Jack should not allow the glamour of playing for club & country again to blindfold him.

    I agree, the return of Wilshere, Carzola and Cech can help bolster the Arsenal late title charge. But even then and hoping they don’t suffer any injury, the current Boss’ starts and bench which he started for the Barca and the Everton games can wrestle the tilte from Leicester if the Boss continues with starting them for the remaining 8 Arsenal BPL games of this season.

  3. I would sell him and cash in. Then buy someone like Youri Tielemans. Excellent dribble, passing and first touch skills. He’s younger and will be better than Wheelchair in no time.
