Jack Wilshere will miss Arsenal's game against Bayern Munich and both of England's upcoming World Cup qualifiers, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

Arsenal have been dealt a blow with the news that Jack Wilshere will be out injured for three weeks after picking up an inflamed ankle.

The English midfielder will miss the Gunners' clash against Bayern Munich as well as their league game with Swansea and England's two World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

Wilshere picked up the injury in Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham, and Arsene Wenger said: "He has an inflamed ankle, the other ankle to the one he injured [before]. He will be out for three weeks and will not be available against Munich and Swansea, and not for England."

Wenger also noted that Wilshere would not be rushed back after what happened to him previously, when he missed the whole of last season with an ankle injury: "He has some bone bruising. The last time it deteriorated into a stress fracture. That's what we don't want to happen."
