Bad news for Arsenal fans as Jack Wilshere still has broken foot in protective boot
Gunners midfielder sustained the injury two weeks ago
Wednesday 19 March 2014
Arsenal supporters will be frustrated to see that Jack Wilshere still has his foot in a protective boot, two weeks after breaking it while on England duty.
The midfielder sustained the injury against Denmark on 5th March, in a crunching tackle from Liverpool defender Daniel Agger, ruling him out for at least six weeks.
Arsenal have seen their results falter since Wilshere's injury, and they have won only two of their last five games although they remain in the title race after their win over Tottenham last Sunday.
Wilshere displayed his protective boot in a tweet yesterday, writing: "Suited and Booted" for the club day earlier!!"
Arsenal will be without the 22-year-old for this Saturday's crucial top of the table clash with Chelsea, a match that not only has huge significance for the title race but is also Arsene Wenger's 1000th game in charge.
