Jack Wilshere is preparing for an emotional return to Arsenal as West Ham United gear up for a London derby tomorrow.
The Emirates plays host as West Ham and Arsenal both go in search of their first win of the Premier League season, having lost the opening two matches.
It'll be Wilshere's first return to North London since being released by the Gunners earlier in the summer, having been told by Unai Emery that he is surplus to requirements.
The 26-year-old, who spent 17 years on Arsenal's books, has enjoyed a mixed start to life at West Ham, but some Gunners fans are putting rivalries to one side to wish him good luck.

If he dazzles for West Ham, it could be quite embarrassing for Emery and the club's recruitment team.
After all, this is a player who was effectively told that he wasn't good enough for the post-Arsene Wenger era, so he will be motivated to show his old side what they're missing out on.
