Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is remaining positive over Jack Wilshere's fitness.
The 20-year-old was first troubled by an ankle problem while on international duty with England last summer and, apart from a pre-season appearance in the Emirates Cup, has not played a competitive match for the Gunners this season.
Wilshere was set to return in early February, but felt pain when running in training earlier this week and will now have a series of consultations with specialists before deciding how to proceed. But Wenger has revealed it could be only a minor setback, saying: "We have no real news yet. The first news we have had is better than expected."
