Aaron Ramsey could feature for Arsenal when they travel to West Ham, according to manager Arsene Wenger.
Ramsey has been sidelined for a month due to the thigh injury he sustained in the Gunners' FA Cup win over Hull, but he is in line to make his return for the trip to Upton Park.
"Ramsey could join in [at West Ham] because he had a good training session yesterday," Wenger told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere is closing in on a return to first-team action after finally overcoming the injury problems that have prevented him from playing for Arsenal this season.
"Let's not rush him. He will play for the under-21s on Friday but I'm cautious," Wenger stated.
Wilshere hit the headlines last weekend when he was pictured speaking to police during a night out in central London, but Wenger has played down the incident.
"I've spoken to him. It looks to be taken out of proportion a little bit," said Wenger. "These are matters that we like to keep internal. This is a completely private matter. I don't know really what happened."
Despite a number of off-field incidents, Wilshere has backed the midfielder to have the career he deserves once he is over his injury problems.
"He's very serious, very dedicated. The only thing that could stop him from having the career he can make is injuries," the Frenchman said.
"He had the history of his injuries. It's been bad recently. But I hope he can get rid of that and make the career he deserves."
