London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is keen to have Jack Wilshere return from an ankle injury for the Premier League leaders' match away to Liverpool on Saturday. The Gunners will travel north to Merseyside looking to at least maintain their two-point advantage over Manchester City and Chelsea following the latter's 1-0 win over the former on Monday.
Wenger said on Thursday that he expected England midfielder Wilshere to be fit for the Anfield clash, having missed last weekend's 2-0 win against Crystal Palace. If Wilshere is available, it will be especially welcome news for Arsenal given Mathieu Flamini is suspended while both Aaron Ramsey and deadline day loan signing Kim Kallstrom are injured
"We might have Wilshere back and that's basically it. (Mikel) Arteta is all right," Wenger said.
