Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that midfielder Jack Wilshere is still suffering from the effects of an ankle injury.

The 21-year-old dropped to the bench for the Gunners' 1-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday after feeling discomfort in his ankle in their 0-0 draw with Everton.

"Jack was a bit in pain after the game," Wenger told reporters. "He has a break until next Sunday and that is different so he will be available.

"There is no basic ankle problem. I just felt we had to stop him because of inflammation last time and I just felt to give him three games in six days would be too much."

Arsenal are third in the Premier League but are just one point ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea and two ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
