Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been ruled out for three weeks with an inflamed ankle, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The England star, who missed 17 months before making his comeback this season, will miss Arsenal’s clashes against Bayern Munich and Swansea, and England’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

Wenger said: “Jack Wilshere is out. He has an inflamed ankle, the other ankle to one he injured. I will be out for three weeks and will not be available for Munich, Swansea and not for England.

“Hopefully for the Premier League he will miss only one game. After that is an international break. We can slowly prepare him.

“I could see in the last couple of games he had started to dig deep. He has played 30 games. For us it is not welcome but maybe for him it is not bad that he has a little breather.

“It is more about prevention. The specialist decided he needed it. He has some bone bruising. The last time it deteriorated into a stress fracture. That’s what we don’t want to happen.

“We trust people who are specialists in this area. He was out for 17 months and we had to deal with it, we must be able to deal with it for two or three games.”
