Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he will not risk youngster Jack Wilshere this season.

The 20-year old midfielder has missed the entire campaign after injuring an ankle late in pre-season with Wenger revealing he is still slowly recovering from the problem with it unlikely he will play at all this term.

"He is making slow progress," Wenger said. "We will have to monitor the situation.

"The next three weeks would be decisive (in him playing this season). I will not take any risk with him."
