Wilshere Almost Back To His Best-Wenger

Arsene Wenger believes Jack Wilshere is “not far away” from rediscovering his best form for Arsenal.

After recovering from a broken leg, Wilshere is yet to play in the Premier League this season, but he made a 22-minute cameo against Cologne in the Europa League last week and is expected to be given another run-out against Doncaster Rovers in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

“If you ask me, ‘Is he back to his full, 100 per cent potential?’, I would say no,” said Wenger. “But he’s not far away.

“The rest now can only be gained by competition. That’s why I believe that these kind of games [Europa League and EFL Cup] are very important for Jack at the moment.

“He is focused, he is working hard and he is absolutely determined to get his place back in the team. There is a big fight there, and that’s what we want.”
