Arsenal arrange Chelsea clash for Wilshere comeback

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will play in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Chelsea tomorrow.

The Sun says the under-21 fixture has been arranged to speed up the midfielder's comeback from the crocked ankle which has kept him out for nearly 16 months.

Wilshere, 20, has had two run-outs and is expected to play at least 75 minutes at the Gunners' training ground.

The plan then would be for a full game against Everton's youngsters on Monday with a potential first-team return in the Capital One Cup clash with Reading in two weeks.

A place on the bench for the Champions League game against Schalke next week has not been ruled out, either.
