Arsene Wenger says Jack Wilshere should just have enough time to be fully-fit for the World Cup. It's been another stop-start season for the 22-year-old, with injuries restricting the midfielder to just 19 starts in the Barclays Premier League.
However, fellow England World Cup hopeful Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains sidelined. The midfielder missed several months with a serious knee injury suffered on the first Premier League game of the season. He has been hampered by a groin problem.
Jack Wilshere is set to return to the Arsenal squad for the final Barclays Premier League match of the season at Norwich. The midfielder has not featured since suffering a fractured foot suffered during a friendly against Denmark on March 5.
Speaking today, Arsene Wenger said: "We have everybody who played against West Brom available. We could have the return of (Aaron) Ramsey and Wilshere could be in the squad as well for Sunday. I don't know (how much game-time Wilshere will get). He will be ready for the World Cup."
Jack Wilshere has sustained a hairline fracture to the navicular bone in his left foot.
Wilshere suffered the injury during England's international match with Denmark on Wednesday night at Wembley Stadium, in which he played 59 minutes.
Following initial scans carried out by the FA on Wednesday night, further investigation by Arsenal's medical team has discovered a crack to a small bone in Jack's left foot - the navicular, an area of his foot which has not been previously injured.
Jack will require a period of approximately six weeks' rehabilitation, before starting to regain his match fitness.
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted a charge from the Football Association over an offensive hand gesture made towards Manchester City fans, but has contested the mandatory two-match ban and the case will be heard by a commission today.
Television cameras picked up Wilshere raising his middle finger in the direction of home supporters at the Etihad Stadium during the second half of the Gunners' 6-3 defeat on Saturday.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said the club would accept any ban handed out "if he did it". If that's the case, Wilshere is likely to miss the game against Chelsea at Emirates Stadium next Monday.
Arsenal midfield player Jack Wilshere has been charged by the FA with making an offensive and/or insulting and/or abusive gesture.
The charge follows an alleged gesture made during the fixture between Manchester City and Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 14 December. The incident was not seen by match officials, but was caught on video.
Wilshere has been charged retrospectively by the FA under a new pilot project for potential 'not seen' incidents in Premier League matches.
