Wenger has urged caution regarding Wilshere, saying recently he may need time to "get his burst back" and the player himself agrees.
"I know exactly what he means by that," he said
"The boss always says it to me when he's reminding me to do my gym work and train hard.
"It just means literally the first five yards. That was one of my strengths of my game - the first five yards, to beat a player. He says it's slowly coming back so hopefully it will come back soon."
