Wilshere and Bacary Sagna are back in full training - but neither will feature on Saturday.
"Jack will play on Monday night for the [Under-21s], he will play an hour. We have to be patient," he said - confirming he would not be available for England's World Cup qualifiers next month.
"I think that [the England games] will be too early for him.
"Vermaelen is available for selection, Sagna is back in full training but won't feature against Chelsea. Rosicky is two weeks away, Szczesny is two or three weeks away."
