Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Tuesday that Wilshere is in the squad for Wednesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray.

Wilshere suffered a knock to his ankle in last weekend's tie with Tottenham and he was widely believed to be out for Wednesday's match. Wenger noted that he is unsure if Wilshere will start, but it's certainly good news that he's at least in contention.

Wilshere is not expected to play in Arsenal's Champions League match against Galatasaray on Wednesday after picking up a knock on his ankle during Saturday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

The injury looked pretty grim at first, but Wilshere was able to keep playing on it. With his long history of ankle injuries, it's unclear how quickly he will be able to recover, making him a long-shot to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Wilshere (ankle) subbed on for Aaron Ramsey in the 78th minute of Arsenal's 3-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Wilshere suffered the injury in Tuesday's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, but the severity was much less severe than initially believed, which allowed him to come on Saturday. Wilshere had a goal and an assist against Manchester City last weekend, but his fantasy ceiling is a bit limited despite his talents.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Friday that Wilshere is available for Arsenal's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday. "I was wrong (after the Dortmund game), it was his left ankle and it was only a click that made him turn his ankle a bit, so he's alright."

Wenger said after the Dortmund game that Wilshere could miss a lot of time due to the injury, as he has a history of ankle ailments, but it looks like he'll be available, though Arsenal have much better fantasy options in midfield such as Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Wilshere suffered an ankle injury during Arsenal's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday and manager Arsene Wenger said he is unsure how much time Wilshere will miss. "It's difficult to say how bad it is because I am a bit cautious, normally it's not very bad but because of his history I'm a bit cautious," Wenger said.

Wilshere scored during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City, though he is not generally a big contributor in most fantasy formats. The injury bug is starting to bite Arsenal a bit, which could lead to a very shuffled lineup Saturday against Aston Villa.

Wilshere enters Tuesday's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund coming off a splendid one-goal, one-assist performance versus Manchester City over the weekend.

Wilshere was all action in Saturday's draw against City, driving Arsenal's midfield forward to spark their comeback. The Englishman scored the Gunners' equalizer, his first goal since January, before setting up another with a fine header to Alexis Sanchez. That performance figures to earn Wilshere another start in Tuesday's titanic tie at German giants Borussia Dortmund.

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.
