Jack Wilshere could be back in action within a month, according to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. The 20-year-old had surgery on an ankle injury in September before suffering a stress fracture in his right foot during his recovery.

Wenger said: "Jack can be back within a month if all goes well." "The recovery of his latest problems looks very good. The latest scan was very positive.

"We go cautiously step-by-step because we tried to push him back quicker in the first instance and he had a setback. So this time we have to be cautious and not go too quick.

"He can be back before the end of the season, of course."
