Midfielder Jack Wilshere sick, out for Arsenal against Anderlecht


LONDON — Manager Arsene Wenger says sick midfielder Jack Wilshere will miss Arsenal's Champions League match against Anderlecht Tuesday.

Wilshere missed Arsenal's 3-0 win against Burnley on Saturday with a knee injury.

A victory over Belgium's Anderlecht could confirm Arsenal's qualification for the knockout stages.

Wenger says "we have nobody else sick" and the rest of the squad will be unchanged from Saturday.

This means Theo Walcott, who returned as a substitute against Burnley after nine months out with a knee injury, has a chance to continue his comeback.
