22-Year-Old Midfielder Arsenal Premier
Wilshere started Saturday's season opener versus Crystal Palace and was substituted after 69 minutes with one shot attempt on goal.
Wilshere apparently came down with an illness toward the end of last week, so manager Arsene Wenger decided to make a substitution upon noticing his midfielder struggling with the game's pace during the second half Saturday. With Mesut Ozil expected to return from his post-World Cup rest this weekend at Everton, Wilshere's starting gig is in jeopardy. With that in mind, Wilshere will probably compete with Santi Cazorla for the final first-team position on Arsenal's team sheet in the coming weeks, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain representing another midfield option as well.
