Jack Wilshere: Arsenal midfielder has an ankle problem

Jack Wilshere: Arsenal midfielder has an ankle problem

Wilshere suffered an ankle injury during Friday night's 4-0 victory over Coventry in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Premier League pacesetters will have defender Thomas Vermaelen and midfield duo Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey available for the match at St Mary's though.

"We have a doubt about Jack Wilshere, who had this ankle problem during the game against Coventry," Wenger said.

"But we have three players back normally in the squad. The three are Vermaelen, Arteta and Ramsey.

"They should all be back and available, but we might lose Jack for tomorrow's game. "

Arsenal's victory over Coventry has set them up with another home tie in the FA Cup, this time against Liverpool.

"It's an interesting draw and a difficult one. We have a little advantage by playing at home. That means we don't travel," Wenger added.

"But overall it's a great difficulty, and we'll try again to absorb it and to come out in a positive way."

The fifth-round tie at the Emirates is due to be played on the weekend of 15 and 16 February.

His style of play is the main problem. He passes the ball as the challenge comes in so he completely takes that player out of the game and can go for a quick 1-2. Unfortunately in this league most of the time the player will take you out anyway...

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
