Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is wary of burning out Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere's return to form and fitness after 17 months out has been one glimmer of hope for Arsenal fans and Wenger has no immediate plans to rest him in cup games.

"Maybe not in this period," Wenger said. "I don't think he is overloaded. He just came back and you get the feeling he gets stronger.

"We have a good approach between what the player feels and what the medical department thinks. At the moment all these are positives so I don't think I will rest him immediately. But it will happen."
