Football - Wilshere missing for Gunners

Arsenal will be without England midfielder Jack Wilshere (fractured foot) for Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Everton.

PA Sport Report

Wilshere is set to be sidelined for around eight weeks. France defender Laurent Koscielny faces a fitness test on a hamstring problem also sustained while away on international duty, so captain Thomas Vermaelen is on standby to deputise.

Full-back Nacho Monreal (ankle) will also be assessed as manager Arsene Wenger looks to utilise his squad. Midfielders Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and deadline-day loan signing Kim Kallstrom (back) are stepping up their rehabilitation, but Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby remain long-term absentees.
