Jack Wilshere is likely to miss Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Burnley on Saturday due to a knee injury, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

The 22-year-old midfielder picked up the problem this week to add to Arsenal’s mounting injury list and join the likes of Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud on the sidelines.

However, Wenger is hopeful that Wilshere will be back in action next week and he could feature in the Champions League clash with Anderlecht on Tuesday night.

The Frenchman also provided updates about Kieran Gibbs (hip) and Theo Walcott (knee) ahead of Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.

“There is a slight problem with Wilshere, Gibbs has a test,” said Wenger.

“He [Wilshere] got a kick on his knee, it is very, very short-term. I don’t know if Tuesday will be too early but certainly [he will be fit for] Swansea [next weekend].”

“Theo Walcott is not completely ready. He’s been out for too long to start.”
