Arsenal legend Ian Wright hopes Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard gives himself enough time to recover fully from his ankle complaint.

Wright opined in his column for The Sun: "I'm sure that Fabio Capello - along with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish - is becoming increasingly concerned by his lack of matches.

"This latest problem is an infected ankle which could rule him out for up to a month, so at least it doesn't sound as serious as his previous issues.

"If anything, he sounds a bit unlucky.

"But I really hope Liverpool do not rush him back too early as I think this may have been the case before. And the same goes for Arsenal's Jack Wilshere, who is sidelined with an extremely serious ankle problem."
