Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains hopeful of Jack Wilshere playing this season.

Wenger remains cautiously optimistic on the recovery of England midfielder Jack Wilshere, who has not played yet this season because of an ankle problem.

"It is difficult to set a deadline on Jack. We go week by week with him, but his last scan was very good so we don't have worry any more," the Arsenal boss said.

"It is about progress and fitness, however I can't set a date."
