Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels the next 10 games will show whether Jack Wilshere can last the distance for club and country this season.

Wilshere, 20, spent more than a year on the sidelines because of niggling fitness problems which stem back to an ankle injury initially suffered when winning his fifth England cap against Switzerland at Wembley in June 2011.

"Jack is not completely through yet the big test of durability, but the fact is that he has come out in a positive way from the three first games, which were quite intense," said Wenger, who was at Great Ormond Street Hospital on Thursday afternoon along with Wilshere to help open the Arsenal Lung Function Unit.
