Arsenal’s midfielder Jack Wilshere is celebrating his 23rd birthday on New Year’s Day.

Out of action with an ankle injury picked up against Manchester United at the Emirates when he was hit late by Paddy McNair in an unpunished challenge, the Englishman is not expected to return to the site for some time yet.

Sharing on Instagram, Wilshere revealed that he had received a cake made by his German teammate to celebrate his birthday.

Given that he won’t be playing any time soon he’ll be able to tuck in to this cake all by himself and not have to worry about putting on some weight.

As you can see from the photo, Lukas Podolski really looks like he’s been stropping about the training ground, something that was reported by the Daily Mirror and strongly refuted by the German who claimed the Mirror’s report was nothing but lies
