Jack Wilshere will take part in the Under-21s match against Stoke City this Tuesday night, along with fellow first team stars Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby, according to Arsenal’s official website.

Arsenal the top form team in Europe, Manchester United not far behind
The England international has been out injured since November, when Manchester United youngster Paddy McNair took him out with a nasty tackle. Wilshere was forced to undergo minor ankle surgery earlier this year, and only recently returned to full training.
Arteta has been suffering with a recurring calf injury for months, and has barely featured this season. He hasn’t played a first team game since our 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in November, and will be hoping to get some game time before the end of the campaign.
These two will feature against Stoke alongside the perennially injured Abou Diaby, who has made one solitary appearance this season during our 2-1 loss against Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

All three players will be looking to build up their fitness as we head into the tail end of the season, with the FA Cup well within our grasp as well as the potential to finish the Premier League campaign with a bang.
They will line up alongside a host of Under-21 regulars, as well as the recently returned Serge Gnabry.
The game kicks off at 7pm at the Emirates stadium.
