Jack Wilshere has assured Arsenal fans that he'll be back in just "a couple of days" despite suffering another ankle injury against Chelsea on Wednesday.
The injury-plagued midfielder limped off in the second half of the 0-0 draw after his foot was twisted when hit by a cross from point-blank range.
But Wilshere, whose career has been interrupted by numerous lengthy injury layoffs, offered a positive diagnosis on social media after being examined on Thursday.
"Thanks for all the messages and support after last night. Good news is I should be back in a couple of days," Wilshere wrote on Twitter.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had said after the Carabao Cup semifinal that Wilshere will probably miss Sunday's trip to Bournemouth -- where he played on loan last season -- but that the injury didn't look "too bad."
Wilshere has re-established himself as a regular Premier League starter for the Gunners in recent weeks but could face added competition for his place when Aaron Ramsey returns from his own injury.
