Arsenal have been boosted with the return of Jack Wilshere after it was announced that the midfielder could return sooner than expected from injury. The midfielder was expected to return in March but Arsenal fans have been handed a lift as the midfielder may likely return before schedule.
Gunners manager, Arsene Wenger, made the announcement in a pre-Stoke match conference in which the French man claimed that the presence of the midfielder would boost the Gunners’ side. The Arsenal manager stated that “Jack is progressing quicker than expected – he could be back before the end of February”
The England and Gunners’ midfielder picked up an injury in a clash against Manchester United in which his side lost 2-1 to the Devils and was made to go under the knife. It was believed that the England international would be out of action for up to five months.
The 23-year-old’s recent announcement of early injury return would mean that Wenger will delight in seeing his injured stars in action, Ozil being one of them.
With the return of Mesut Ozil and a possible early return for Jack Wilshere means that Arsene Wenger’s team would go into the UEFA Champions League round of 16 stage against a less confident Monaco who has seen star players such as James Rodriquez and Radamel Falcao move to Real Madrid and Manchester United respectively.
Jack Wilshere now looks set to join the ranks of Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey whohave returned from injury ahead of their Champions League clash against Monaco.
Arsenal Skipper, Mikel Arteta is presently sidelined after sustaining a calf injury and striker Danny Welbeck is said to be battling a minor problem and could be back shortly.
However Arsenal whizzed past Stoke in a 3-0 encounter in which Alexis Sanchez took the center stage as the main attraction in the match.
Luck has also smiled on the Gunners’ manager as his first team defenders are now fit for first team football. Other than the English Premier League, the Gunners are active in the Champions League and also the FA Cup.
