Jack Wilshere could return to Arsenal training on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Anderlecht, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

The England midfielder sat out Saturday’s 3-0 win over Burnley at Emirates Stadium after picking up a minor knee problem in the build-up to the game.

But Wenger is hopeful that the 22-year-old will be back available for the midweek European game at Emirates Stadium.

Quizzed about Wilshere’s fitness after Saturday’s victory, Wenger replied: “He has not practiced yet. Will he be available? We’ll see. I think he will try tomorrow, Monday latest.”

And when asked if his side had suffered any fresh injury setbacks, he added simply: “No.”

Saturday’s victory hoisted Arsenal up to fourth place in the Premier League table as they recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
