Arsène Wenger confirmed that Jack Wilshere is still on track for a return in October in Friday’s press conference.
The midfielder was injured shortly before the Community Shield at the beginning of the month, suffering a hairline fracture to his fibula. It is the latest in a long line of Wilshere injuries, but Wenger has said the midfielder is still progressing well.
The midfielder isn’t too far away from full training and is expected to return to match action in October, meaning the next international break is too soon for him to feature.

Wilshere has become a guaranteed starter under Roy Hodgson and scored twice on his last international appearance against Slovakia but will miss the upcoming games against San Marino and Switzerland.
Arsenal are still without Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck, but there is otherwise a clean bill of health. Wenger confirmed that all 18 players from the squad that beat Crystal Palace are available for selection for the visit of Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool on Monday evening.
