Photos: Arsenal star sports impressive new-look beard alongside Mesut Ozil at Highbury

Jack Wilshere poses alongside Arsenal pair Petr Cech and Mesut Ozil at Highbury on Thursday evening

Jack Wilshere is certainly embracing the London hipster vibe after the Arsenal midfielder sported a healthy-looking beard ahead of the Arsenal Foundation Ball on Thursday night.

The England international made his return from an ankle injury last month as a second-half substitute in Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium.

Wilshere was a first-half replacement for Danny Welbeck at the weekend after the Arsenal striker suffered a serious knee injury during Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Manchester City.

And the 24-year-old Euro 2016 hopeful posed with club-record signing Mesut Ozil and Arsenal number one Petr Cech ahead of the north London side’s Foundation Ball.

Here is a selection of the best photos ahead of the special night.
