Arsène Wenger revealed the following fitness news ahead of the Fulham game:

on Jack Wilshere
He is progressing like somebody who has just had surgery six weeks ago. Very well, very good. We have to assess him again in two or three weeks. He is working very hard at the moment, he is working in the gym and he works hard.

on a possible return date...
It's too early [to say]. A target could be the beginning of 2012. When I say that, I mean the end of January/February. Something like that.
