Wilshere scored in the 17th minute of Arsenal's 4-1 win over West Brom on Sunday.

Wilshere missed considerable time this season with another ankle injury, something that has plagued him for a number of seasons during his young career. He made only 14 appearances this season, finishing with two goals and one assist. He's never been a big goal scorer, and while he's only 23 years old with plenty of football left in him, it's unlikely a role he will all of a sudden develop. He's an important piece for the Gunners but his biggest hurdle every year will be to stay fit for an entire season.

Wilshere (ankle) is expected to be available for Saturday's FA Cup match against Reading, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Wilshere was expected to be fit for last weekend's match against Burnley, but he was ultimately left out of the squad once again. The Arsenal midfield is surprisingly fit right now, giving little reason for Wilshere to be rushed back before he is 100 percent healthy.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger warned Manchester City that Wilshere (ankle) will not be sold this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder is currently dealing with an ankle injury, but may be available for selection this weekend against Burnley. Wilshere has been out of action since November.

Wilshere has recovered from his ankle injury and should be available for Saturday's match against Burnley, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

There was a potential for Wilshere to return last weekend against Stoke City after participating in a U-21 match last Tuesday, but Wenger decided to hold him out for one more game. Given that he's been out since February, Wilshere isn't likely to start, and even when fully fit, he's a relatively weak fantasy option in most formats.

Wilshere played a full 90 minutes in Arsenal's U-21 match against Stoke as he works to overcome his ankle injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Wilshere is working to push his way back into Arsenal's team sheet before the season ends. He helped the U-21 side win 4-1, and did not appear to aggravate his ankle.

Despite playing in an U-21 match Tuesday as part of his recovery from an ankle injury, Wilshere is not in the squad Saturday against Liverpool.

Wilshere has been sidelined since having surgery in February, so while he was able to play in the U-21 affair, it may be more of a match fitness issue than anything else. His next opportunity to play comes April 11 against Burnley.

Wilshere (ankle) played in an U-21 match this week and is expected to be available for Saturday's match against Liverpool.

Given the length of Wilshere's absence, it would be very surprising if he was given the start against Liverpool, making him a fairly limited fantasy option in the short-term.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Wilshere is at least 2-to-3 weeks away from returning from his ankle injury.

Given Wilshere's history of ankle injuries and the relative health in the Arsenal midfield right now, there's very little reason to rush him back. In fact, his starting spot is far from assured when he does return to fitness, keeping him a fairly weak fantasy option.
