Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger gives update on Jack Wilshere injury

Arsene Wenger and Jack Wilshere Press Conference - 18/02/2014

Arsene Wenger has good news on the injury of Jack Wilshere.

Arsenal had a bad day at the office today as they were held 2-2 at The Emirates by Hull City. It is certainly not the first time that The Tigers had caused them trouble, but when Alexis Sanchez gave them the lead in the first-half they should have gone on to produce victory.

However goals from Momo Diame and Abel Hernandez, two of the new signings Arsene Wenger praised earlier in the week, left Arsenal needing a last minute goal from Danny Welbeck to take a point away from The Emirates.

But the day looked to get worse when Jack Wilshere was subbed off suffering with a knee injury.

He went into a competitive challenge with Uruguayan midfielder Gaston Ramirez and came out second best. He looked to twist his knee and fans on Twitter were certainly worried that he might face a spell on the sidelines just when he begins to show his best form ever for the club.

However, Wenger has made it clear that he is not worried about the injury.

He didn't say much about the injury after the game to the BBC, but made it clear that the injury did not look severe.

He said:

"It looks ... not a lot."

Wenger is often a man of few words but he certainly wanted to play down the initial fears that always come up when a player injures his knee - especially someone with a history of injuries like Wilshere's.

So a weight off the shoulders it would seem but then again Mesut Ozil was cleared fit to play for Germany by Arsenal before the international break, despite a knee ligament strain that was diagnosed by the German medical office - which looks set to keep him out until 2015.

So wait for official confirmation before getting your hopes up.
