Arsenal fans react to another Wilshere injury

Arsenal fans waved goodbye to a fan favourite in the summer as Jack Wilshere left the Gunners to join West Ham on a free transfer.

Wilshere rose through the academy in North London to become a first-team favourite at the Emirates Stadium but his career with Arsenal was heavily affected by injury issues, which eventually played a key part in his exit.

At West Ham, Wilshere started to enjoy a new lease of life after featuring for Manuel Pellegrini’s side in each of the opening four games of the Premier League season, though he experienced defeat in all of those matches and has since been hit with another injury blow.

Wilshere missed Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Everton and it has now been confirmed that the England international has undergone surgery, which leaves the 26-year-old set for another six-week spell on the sidelines.

Arsenal fans on social media have had their say on the news and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
