Arsene Wenger admitted that it is too early to tell the severity of Jack Wilshere’s injury after he was forced off in the second half of Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on Saturday.

The England midfielder was substituted after sustaining what appeared to be an ankle injury after a heavy challenge from Paddy McNair.

Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was also forced off in the second half after picking up a knock in a collision with Kieran Gibbs.

And speaking after the game, Wenger said: “Wojciech is not bad. Jack I don’t know how bad it is because he tried to stay on and couldn’t. It could be an ankle problem, I don’t know how bad it is.”

Asked about his overall take on the game, the Frenchman added: “It’s a game that we dominated for 80 per cent of the time and we haven’t dominated a game like that against Manchester United for a long time.

“At the end of the day we were not efficient enough in the final third.”
