Wilshere ready to return for Christmas
Jack Wilshere is on course to make his comeback
for Arsenal in time for Christmas, according to
The 23-year-old midfielder has not kicked a ball
this season after suffering a hairline fracture of his
leg in pre-season, but the Sunday Mirror claims
the England man is closing in on a return to action
His recovery has gone according to plan and
Arsenal are confident he will be back to fitness for
the matches at Southampton on Boxing Day, the
home game with Bournemouth two days later and
Newcastle at The Emirates on January 2.
And that will come as a huge shot in the arm to
boss Arsene Wenger, who is without Theo Walcott,
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin and
Danny Welbeck as well as Wilshere.
Wilshere, who last month described his latest injury
as a â€œfreak incidentâ€ in training, has admitted he
â€œmight have to calm down a bit in trainingâ€ in a bid
to stay injury free.
The one-club Wilshere has won 28 England caps
and Spain great Xavi claimed he would be one of
the worldâ€™s best if he could stay clear of injuries.
