Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Jack Wilshere could be available for West Ham’s final four games of the season, reports.

Wilshere has been out with an ankle injury since early December but has been back in training recently.

After playing for just over 60 minutes in the under-23 match against Leicester City, Wilshere is now expected to return to training ‘100 per cent’ next week.

This means he will miss this weekend’s trip to Old Trafford but could be back for West Ham’s last four matches of 2018/19.

As reported by, Pellegrini told the press conference: “Jack Wilshere is almost ready. He played one game for the U23s last week and hopefully he’ll play another one.  Next week, I think that he’ll be working 100 per cent with our squad.”

But quite a few fans are sceptical of Wilshere’s fitness, having seen him suffer two long-term injuries this season.

Here are the best tweets from West Ham fans discussing the Wilshere latest.
