Jack Wilshere played a rare full match for Arsenal in Wednesday's narrow 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.
The oft-injured midfielder, who spent last season on loan to Bournemouth, had not played a complete game for the Gunners since a showdown with Southampton in the early part of the 2014/15 season.

Wednesday's cup match was also Wilshere's first start for Arsene Wenger's side in 492 days.
Theo Walcott scored the game's only goal to see Arsenal advance in the league cup.
