Jack Wilshere has been ruled out of Arsenal’s showdown against Liverpool today through injury.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed last week before his side’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace that Wilshere was struggling with a recurring ankle problem.

He featured as a substitute in that game at Selhurst Park and also played against Chelsea in Arsenal’s 2-0 Capital One cup defeat on Tuesday.

However according to Goal, Wilshere won’t be fit enough to feature in the clash at the Emirates Stadium this evening as he continues to struggle with his ankle complaint.

The 21-year-old had surgery on his ankle over the summer, and Goal claim that Wenger will give the young midfielder a break from action in order to avoid aggravating the problem.

If true, the news will come as a blow for Arsenal who are already without Mathieu Flamini for the showdown against Liverpool.

Serge Gnabry will also miss out while for Liverpool, Jose Enrique is expected to sit out of the top of the table clash.
