According to a report from Claret and Hugh, Jack Wilshere could miss Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace, having picked up a knock away to Bournemouth last weekend.

The 27-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer of 2018. Injuries have played havoc with his hopes of being a success at the London Stadium, however.

The Englishman made just eight Premier League appearances for West Ham last season. This term he’s made four outings in the league.

Wilshere has looked unfit and well off the pace, however. It must be so frustrating for the Hammers because on his day, the former Arsenal man is unplayable. He just can’t seem to get a run of games under his belt without getting injured.

The 27-year-old, who earns £100,000 per week according to Spotrac, still has a lot to prove at West Ham.


According to Claret and Hugh, he is a minor doubt for Saturday’s clash with Palace.

The Hammers have plenty of top class central midfielders, however, so they should be able to cope just fine without him.

Maybe missing Saturday’s game will be a blessing in disguise for Wilshere.

With the two-week international break coming up, the midfielder has a great chance to really work on his fitness, and return back to the first-team squad in three weeks time.
