Goal.com exclusively revealed the lengths the Gunners were going to in a bid to get Wilshere back sooner than normal, which included running on an anti-gravity treadmill built by NASA.
Wenger reinstalled Wilshere to his starting XI sooner than had been expected and the Frenchman concedes that he was not completely ready for action - but insists that he was not ignoring the advice of the club's medical staff.
"I rushed Jack back a bit; he was not completely ready," the manager told Arsenal's official website. "How careful must I be? To listen well to the medical advice and that is what I have to do.
"Use him when everything is alright and listen to him as well, how he feels. He has been out for six weeks, so maybe it was a bit too rushed what I did.
"He has practised with me since he was 16, so I know quite well how his body responds to things."
