Wilshere has been playing with the injury and is fit to face Southampton on Saturday after coming through the international break unscathed. Arsene Wenger said:

"We play 60 games per year and Jack will certainly have to be managed - unless his pains go completely, then he will be used when needed. If there is an alert on his ankles, we will of course take advice from the medical department and use him when he can really be used."
