JACK WILSHERE added another episode to his injury ladened career as he limped out of Arsenal’s goalless draw with Chelsea last night.

The England international rolled his ankle while blocking a shot at Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup semi-final clash.

And Arsenal fans feared that he may now be set for another extended period on the sidelines after only just recovering from his latest set-back.

But Wenger has confirmed that the injury is not as serious as first thought.

Wilshere has suffered a sprained ankle and will definitely miss the trip to Bournemouth on Sunday (1.30pm).

However, the Frenchman did confirm that the 26-year-old should not be out for too long.

“He has an ankle sprain,” Wenger said.

“First look at it is not too bad.

“Of course for Sunday he will be short.
