Arsenal Receive Boost As Jack Wilshere Steps Up Return From Injury

Posted by

Arsenal have received a big lift to their hopes of a strong finish to the season with news that Jack Wilshere has stepped up his return from injury.

The Gunners have a huge task on their hands to finish fourth in the Premier League to earn UEFA Champions League qualification ahead of Everton, while this weekend there is the small matter of the FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium.

Wilshere won’t be able to feature on Saturday, but the Daily Mail report that he should start running in the coming days for the first time since a tough challenge from Liverpool’s Daniel Agger caused a hairline fracture to his left foot during the England v Denmark international friendly on March 5th.

Soon after that will come ball work, and then Wilshere should return to match contention in time to give himself a chance of proving his fitness and form to Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
