Despite Arsene Wenger saying at his early press conference that Jack Wilshere needed one more game before making his comeback, it’s been confirmed that Jack will be in the squad for tomorrow’s game against Norwich.
The England international hasn’t played a first team game since May 2011 and after a number of successful U21/behind-closed-doors games, he’s obviously been declared fit enough to take part.
Earlier, Wenger said, “He needs one more game, maybe Monday night (U21s), then he will be back.”
It’s good news for Arsenal and for Wilshere, and although it would be a stretch to see him start the game, he could well make an appearance from the bench.
Wilshere’s agent said via Twitter, “It’s been two “good news” days in a row. Doesn’t happen very often. Jack travels to Norwich in the #AFC 1st team squad! Delighted.”
Welcome back, Jack!
