Wilshere could return in four weeks


Jack Wilshere is at least three or four weeks away from a first-team return, according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Wilshere broke his fibula in pre-season and subsequently underwent surgery in September when it was discovered that the injury was not healing as well as it should.

A second fracture delayed his return further and, while he is back training with the first team, Wenger is reluctant to include him in his plans until he is convinced the midfielder is ready.

When delivering an injury update on his squad ahead of the FA Cup fifth round tie against Hull, Wenger said: "Wilshere back in 3-4 weeks."

Meanwhile, Gabriel Paulista will not feature against the Championship side but Laurent Koscielny could return if he passes a fitness test on Friday.

"Koscielny will be available - he has a test today. Gabriel is still out, for one more week," Wenger told reporters.

Danny Welbeck made a welcome return to the squad for last weekend's Premier League tie against Leicester and he marked his return with a goal in the closing stages to secure a vital win for his side.

However, Wenger does not know whether he will include Welbeck from the start against Hull.

"I might start him. I haven't decided yet completed, but it crosses my mind," he revealed.
