Jack Wilshere: On the bench at the weekend

The England midfielder has started the midweek draw with Everton - but he was rested as a precaution by Wenger, only coming on at Craven Cottage late on.

"Jack was a bit in pain after the game. He has a break until next Sunday and that is different so he will be available," Wenger told the Daily Mirror.

"There is no basic ankle problem. I do not want to go into a vicious circle again when I play, I play him, I play him and then suddenly.

"I think coming back after six weeks out, two games in a week was enough.

"I just felt we had to stop him because of inflammation last time and I just felt to give him three games in six days would be too much.

"I do not want to go into a vicious circle again when I play, I play him, I play him and then suddenly, I think coming back after six weeks out, two games in a week was enough.

"Jack has a game that is based on dribbling so they are more exposed to kicks and players who are just passing players and you don't want him to lose that because that is his strength."
