Arsene Wenger is hoping to have Jack Wilshere back at Liverpool after claiming the Arsenal midfielder is a big game player.

England star Wilshere has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and is battling to be fit in time for Saturday's trip to Anfield.

Gunners boss Wenger admits Liverpool will be a huge test at the start of Arsenal's tough run of four games in 11 days. They play Liverpool twice in the Premier League and FA Cup, Manchester United and then Bayern Munich.

Wenger said: "It's important to have as many players back as possible in the squad. In the big games it is always decided by having the complete squad available.
