“Wenger confirms Wilshere should be back quicker than initially expected. Could be back in training in two weeks,” reported Kevin Palmer of the Sunday World.
He continued: “Wilshere to return to action in four weeks and not the eight that was initially suggested.”
David Ornstein of BBC Sport described the nature of Wilshere’s injury, as well as how it emerged:
Arsenal are scheduled to face West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Newcastle United before the end of August. Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail noted Wilshere could remain absent for England’s Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino (Sept. 5) and Switzerland (Sept. 8), but the shorter timescales mean he could be back for those international matches.
Unfortunately, injuries have been a major part of the story of Wilshere’s career so far. There has been only one term (2010-11) in which he was able to make it through without battling any notable ailments, per Transfermarkt.co.uk.
Last season he dealt with a minor knee issue before suffering a more serious ankle injury in November that kept him sidelined for several months. Balky ankles have been a big part of the problem for him over the years.
However, Wenger’s men showed they can cope without the England international during the 1-0 Community Shield win over Chelsea, with a combination of Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin offering balance in the centre. Wilshere faces a difficult task to oust one of the three when he returns to full fitness.
