Wilshere is expected to be fit for the top of the table clash.
There is some good news for Arsenal ahead of the Premier League clash with Liverpool on Saturday as Jack Wilshere is expected to make a return from injury, reports the London Evening Standard.
The midfielder has been out of action since January 24 after picking up an ankle injury during the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Coventry City.
Wilshere’s return will come as welcome news to manager Arsene Wenger and is very timely, as the north London club are in the middle of a midfield selection crisis currently.
Aaron Ramsey is out for six weeks with a thigh injury, whilst new signing Kim Kallstrom is also expected to be out for the same length of time with a back problem.
Added to this is the absence of Mathieu Flamini due to a three-match suspension – the second of which will be served during the Reds clash – and the Gunners are only left with Mikel Arteta as a natural central midfielder.
During the 2-0 league triumph over Crystal Palace on Sunday Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain filled in and greatly impressed, as the England international scored both goals and generally looked lively.
However, the more options Wenger has the better, particularly with the game at Anfield being the first of a tricky run in that sees the side take on Manchester United in the league, Bayern Munich in the Champions League and then Brendan Rodgers’ men again in the FA Cup.
