The Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere, has said that he has regained his fitness completely and he is ready to make a comeback now. Wilshere hasn’t played for the senior team of Arsenal since the last 15 minutes due to severe injury problems. The 20 years old Englishman has been training since the last two weeks. He also played a couple of matches for the Arsenal U21 team this month. Apart from those two matches, Wilshere also represented Arsenal in a friendly game against Chelsea XI last Wednesday. He played for full 90 minutes in that match and moved quite well on the field.

Arsenal has to play against Norwich City on the upcoming Saturday at the Carrow Road and Wilshere wants to play in that match. When asked whether he thinks he will be given playing opportunity in the upcoming match against Norwich City,  the English midfielder said, “ It all depends on the manager whether he includes me in the team or not. But, I definitely want to play in that match. I have got 100% fit now and I am itching to represent the first team of Arsenal again.”

Bacary Sagna also played for Arsenal in that friendly match against Chelsea XI. Sagna has also not played any match for the first team of Arsenal since the last 5 months.

In spite of the presence of these two players, Arsenal lost the friendly match against Chelsea by 0-2. But, the positive thing for the Arsenal management was the way Wilshere and Sagna moved in the field. Both of them looked completely fit. In the first half, Sagna played at the right back position, but, in the second half, his position was changed and he played at centre back position. While, Wilshere played as an attacking midfielder.

Now, it would be interesting to see whether these two players would get playing chance or not in Saturday’s game against Norwich City.
