Gunners suffer Wilshere blow

Arsenal can't seem to catch a break at the moment and their fortunes regarding injuries and suspensions have not taken a turn for the better, with news their star midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for five months out on the sidelines.

The England international has undergone surgery on the ankle injury at a London hospital and although he was believed to be set for a return during the busy Christmas period, the 19-year-old is now more likely to be back for February and not the festive period. Those looking at the Premier League betting predictions should bear this in mind.

With the loss of midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri in the summer transfer window, Wilshere was expected to come to the fore after some outstanding performances for the Gunners in the Premier League and Champions League last term.

The talented playmaker received some of the highest accolades from people in the game, including Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, who highly rates the Three Lions midfielder.

However Wilshere's development will have to be put on hold for the immediate future with his rehabilitation from the surgery and his easing back into first-team action. People who bet on Premier League weekend games should remember this.

Speaking after his operation on the stress fracture on his right ankle, Wilshere appears to be upbeat on his recovery and is already looking forward to putting on the red jersey next year.

He said on the club's official website: "I've had the operation this morning and all went well. My ankle is a little bit sore, but I'm already looking forward to working hard to get fit and playing again.

"I would also just like to say thanks for the many messages of support I have received from you - the fantastic Arsenal supporters. See you all soon at the Emirates."
