Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed Jack Wilshere was substituted due to a ligament strain in his ankle during the hard-fought 0-0 draw in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

The long-serving Frenchman revealed after the match the 26-year-old will miss the Premier League game at Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

Wenger said: “He has an ankle strain. First look is it is not too bad. But for Sunday it might be too short, it is a ligament. It’s a shame.”

It was honours even after a passionate London derby saw Arsenal draw 0-0 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the second time this season, with the winner takes all in the second leg on January 24.

Wenger reflected on the match saying: “It was a game that was physical and two teams that defended very well.

“It was the first leg of a tie but we had great solidarity. It was a deserved 0-0, we couldn’t take our chances. But we will try to do out job in the second leg. We have played so many games against Chelsea.”
