The England international was forced to sit out the Community Shield showdown against Chelsea last weekend after picking up yet another ankle knock in training and fresh reports suggest he could be out for at least two months with a suspected hairline fracture.
A strong challenge from Manchester United defender Paddy McNair in the game at the Emirates Stadium last November left Wilshere out of action for five months and the Gunners number 10 is likely to be devastated with this latest setback.
Many expected Wilshere to pick up from where he left off at the end of the 2014-15 campaign where he scored stunning goals for both club and country, however, with him set for another long-term spell on the sidelines, it does raise the question as to if he will ever be injury free.
