Reason why AC Milan won't sign Jack Wilshere from Arsenal

Jack Wilshere is sent off for Arsenal under-23s

Having yet to play for the first team this season as he continues his recovery from a leg fracture which he suffered back in April during his loan stint with Bournemouth, the 25-year-old started the game and assisted a goal as the Gunners raced to a 4-1 lead.

Jack Wilshere's return from injury seemed to be going according to plan tonight, when the Arsenal midfielder laid on an assist during an u23 game against Manchester City.

Just after the hour mark, Wilshere was caught by a clumsy, late challenge by City midfielder Matthew Smith.

The fracas then saw City defender Tyreke Wilson run to the centre circle to confront Wilshere, the two players grappling each other around the neck before further team-mates from each side became involved in shoving as tempers boiled over. "After that, we will see at the end of the season", Wenger said earlier this month, as quoted by The Guardian.

The England international's career is at a low ebb after a succession of injuries.

Wenger is clearly an admirer and you can only hope the teenager gets plenty of opportunity to showcase his obvious talents in the cup competitions and Europa League.

There was more to come after the break, with Nelson using a number of blue shirts as a shield to tuck home from inside the box after good work by Josh Dasilva.

Wilshere was swiftly sent off, and Arsenal clung on to win the fixture 4-3 at The Emirates.

The gap was reduced further when Lukas Nmecha, England's Under 19 European Championship victor this summer, converted a penalty late on.
