The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told Arsenal Football News that he will not be rushing the star midfielder Jack Wilshere into the first team action. The 20-year-old recently returned to first team training after more than a year out with an ankle injury. He has suffered many setbacks during his attempts to come back to the Arsenal first team last season.

It even forced him to miss the Euro 2012. Considering the serious nature of the injury, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not prepared to recent and bringing him to the first-team immediately. Wenger, though, has confirmed that he will be part of the reserves team that will take on West Brom on Monday night.

Arsene Wenger was speaking ahead of the crucial match with Chelsea during the weekend. Arsenal have already proved in the matches against Manchester city and Liverpool that they have improved vastly over the previous seasons. The presence of Jack Wilshere in the midfield against Chelsea would have been the perfect combination for Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the England international will not be part of the squad that faces Chelsea. Arsenal have made a good start to the season and are undefeated in the Premier league so far.

“Jack will play on Monday, he will play his first game with the under-21s, maybe an hour or something like that. It is another important step, but he has not played for 14 months so we have to calm your [the media’s] impatience a little bit. It is fantastic for him. When you are at that age and are out for such a long time, it is absolutely massive to take (for) him and (Emmanuel) Frimpong to come back and (massive) for us as well,” said Arsene Wenger ahead of the match with Chelsea during the weekend.
