Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that midfielder Jack Wilshere is getting "stronger" with each passing game and will not rest him just yet.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he is not willing to rest midfielder Jack Wilshere just yet.

The 21-year-old returned to first-team action in late October after a 14-month injury layoff and has been in impressive form since then.

"Maybe [I won't rest him] in this period, but at some stage I will do it," Wenger told Arsenal's official website. "At the moment I don't think he is overloaded because he just came back very recently, and you get the feeling that he gets stronger.

"We have a good approach taking the physical analysis and statistical analysis between what the player feels and what the medical department thinks, and you have to come to a conclusion on that.

"At the moment, all these three are positives so I don't think at the moment I will rest him immediately. But it will happen."

Arsenal will host Swansea City in the FA Cup third-round replay at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.
