Cape Town - Arsenal
midfielder Jack Wilshere has played down concerns that he could be set
for another spell on the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury
against Chelsea on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old is starting to rediscover his best form now that he's
back to full fitness, having recovered from a fractured leg that saw
him miss the start of the season.
But new fears arose when Wilshere was forced off in the 57th minute
of the EFL Cup semi-final, first-leg clash at Stamford Bridge, which
finished goalless, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger claiming afterwards
he had sprained an ankle.
The England international suggested on Thursday, however, that the
problem is minor and shouldn't prevent him from returning to action at
former employers Bournemouth on Sunday.
"Thanks for all the messages and support after last night," Wilshere said on Twitter. "Good news is I should be back in a couple of days."
