Arsenal boss Wenger: Wilshere will start against Schalke

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Jack Wilshere could start in their Champions League clash with Schalke.

Wenger is happy with Wilshere’s progress and looks set to start him in a European game for the first time since Arsenal were knocked out by Barcelona in March 2011.

"I think I will play him tomorrow," said Wenger.

"Then we have a block of three games and maybe the fact that he gets a period of recovering will be just right for him. He gets better in every game.

"I think the sending off [at Old Trafford] was very harsh, having watched it again," added Wenger. "Sometimes, I believe that slow motion doesn’t help the judgment. He went for the ball."
