The Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere faces a further two months on the sidelines due to the ankle injury which has blighted his summer.
Wilshere had been hoping to be back in action by now, after suffering the injury in June. The 19-year-old was thought to have recovered by late July but he limped off after just seven minutes of Arsenal's Emirates Cup match with the New York Red Bulls.
He then suffered a setback in training last month, and his manager, Arsène Wenger, predicted he would miss "two or three weeks". However, Wilshere is now not expected back until November.
Arsenal said on Sunday: "He will be out for a couple more months, he needs to rest and then we will see where he's at."
