According to the Mirror, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could miss Sunday’s trip to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old recently picked up an ankle injury, causing him to miss Thursday’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City. He’s made only one start for Arsenal in their last four league games and there’s a worry he could sit out of this weekend’s outing with Brighton.
Wilshere was absent at the start of the season as he was recovering from a leg fracture. His first league game of the campaign didn’t come until October, but he’s been an ever-present in the Arsenal side ever since – featuring in 11 of the Gunners’ last 13.
However, Arsene Wenger could be without the academy graduate’s creativity on Sunday, which could mean Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka start against Chris Hughton’s side at the heart of the midfield. Arsenal are fragile of late, having lost three on the bounce in all competitions, and the loss of Wilshere makes their task of winning ever harder.
Scoring and creating three goals in nine league starts, Wilshere has also made 33 successful dribbles and has been brilliant driving with the ball from deep. He’ll be missed against Brighton if he doesn’t return in time.
