Arsenal are set to receive a big boost this week with Jack Wilshere set to step up his recovery.

Wilshere has missed the entire campaign with an ankle injury sustained in pre-season. But the key midfielder, 19, is about to take a major step in his return to fitness.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who was boosted by defender Bacary Sagna's return to running last week, revealed: "Wilshere is doing very well. He is one week behind Sagna so he should start to run this week."
