Arsenal ace Jack Wilshere has quashed fears about his fitness ahead of the midweek clash against Barcelona.

The midfielder went down under the challenge of Sulley Muntari in the 0-0 draw against Sunderland at the Emirates on Saturday, sparking fears that the England international would miss the Champions League showdown at the Nou Camp.

With Cesc Fabregas fighting for fitness and Alex Song another major doubt, the Gunners' midfield was facing the possibility of looking extremely thin ahead of the second leg match up in Catalonia.

However, Wilshere provided a quick response to his fans on twitter reassuring them of his involvement in tomorrow's crunch clash.

"Just to let you know i am not injured and if selected will be fit to face Barca! Few kicks but nothing too bad!" wrote the 19-year-old.


 

The news provides Arsenal with a major boss, with Wilshere one of the stars of the show when the north London side stunned Barca a fortnight ago in the first leg.

Far from out of place against Anders Iniesta and Xavi on the night, the game in Spain is set to be the biggest night in the youngsters career thus far.

More positive news emerged from the Gunners camp earlier today too, with Cesc Fabregas '90% certain' to feature against Pep Guardiola's side.

Defending a slender 2-1 lead, both Wilshere and Fabregas will need to be on top form to help Arsenal stun the La Liga leaders and progress to the quarter-finals.
