QPR manager Mark Hughes believes the Barclays Premier League has suffered due to Jack Wilshere's long injury lay-off.
Hughes takes QPR to Arsenal on Saturday still searching for a first league win and Wilshere, who has not played for the Gunners in 15 months, is likely to be involved.
The 20-year-old England international was earning plaudits for his displays in the heart of the Arsenal midfield before suffering an ankle injury that has troubled him ever since. Hughes said: "He is an outstanding young player, the league has been a lesser league really because when you take a young player of his ability out for so long then everyone misses watching his talent."
