Wilshere steps up Gunners return

Jack Wilshere cleared another significant hurdle in his bid to return to the Arsenal first-team by completing 90 minutes in a friendly against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Wilshere, 20, had featured for Arsenal's Under-21 side already this month, but was yet to last the full course in a match.

He managed that - as did Bacary Sagna and Emmanuel Frimpong, two others on the comeback trail - as Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by a Blues XI at London Colney.

England international Wilshere did not feature at all for Arsenal last season, but looked to be recovering some of his sharpness against Chelsea, forcing goalkeeper Jamal Blackman into a sharp second-half save.

Meanwhile, John Terry played the first half for Chelsea after his decision to retire from international football made him available.
