Jack Wilshere seems to be keeping his spirits high despite his lengthy injury lay-off as his Arsenal team-mates prepare for their trip to Southampton on Boxing Day.

Wilshere is yet to feature for Arsenal this season after undergoing surgery on a broken leg before the start of the campaign back in August.

The England international has had to contend with various spells on the sidelines in recent seasons due to a number of different injuries.

However, the midfielder seems to be coping well with his prolonged absence, if his latest post on social media is anything to go by.

Wilshere posted the picture above of himself with his girlfriend Andriani Michael on his personal Instagram account on Christmas Day and wrote: “Merry Christmas everyone @andriani_m”

Arsene Wenger recently revealed that he is hoping Wilshere will be able to make a return to first-team action with Arsenal early in the New Year.

Wilshere was also sidelined for five months last season following an ankle injury against Manchester United in November 2014.
