Jack Wilshere won’t be able to feature for the Gunners for approximately three months after the midfielder underwent surgery, and now internet bookmakers would like to see how the team will manage without the player’s services.
The player was taken off during the second half of the team’s 2-1 loss at home to Manchester United on Saturday, as he suffered an ankle injury in a challenge that he had with Paddy McNair.
The player was then sent to a surgeon to be evaluated and now had an operation on his ankle.
A statement by the Gunners read: “Jack Wilshere has had successful surgery on his left ankle and will be out for approximately three months.
“An assessment with a specialist confirmed the need for an operation and the 22-year-old had successful surgery to his ankle in London on Thursday afternoon.
“Jack will now commence his injury rehabilitation programme with the Arsenal medical team.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery and looks forward to seeing him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
