This Saturday Jack Wilshere is expected to make his Bournemouth debut following his surprise loan switch on transfer deadline day.

With a reported ten clubs circling to secure the services of the England international the move represents quite a coup for the south coast outfit and – should he stay fit – his energetic probing will much improve Eddie Howe’s young side.

Yet that caveat is significantly greater than the usual aside added when talking about a player’s potential success: For the injury-cursed midfielder it is the difference between fulfilling his vast promise or sadly becoming forever associated with the treatment table.

The graphic below fully illustrates the startling array of injuries suffered by Wilshere in his career so far and also reveals beyond question that the Cherries may have beaten off nine rivals but the risk starts here.


888sport go for a 4/7 price for Jack Wilshere to go off injured in his first match for Bournemouth, and a massive 50/1 price for Wilshere to make under 5 Premier League appearances for Bournemouth this year. He’s 20/1 to make under 10 PL appearances and 3/1 to make under 15 PL appearances this season with 888sport.
