WILSHERE SET FOR FA CUP START
Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wilshere is in line to start the FA Cup quarterfinal clash with South Coast rivals Southampton this weekend. The Premier League team take the short trip to face Jack Wilshere and Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium later this week and the ex-Arsenal star could be in the starting XI for the match. Bournemouth play hosts to the Saints in the first FA Cup quarterfinals with a place in the semis at the iconic Wembley Stadium up for grabs and the Cherries would fancy their chances against a Southampton team that has lost 11 of their last 13 games in the Premier League. The run has seen the Saints drop from the top four places into a relegation battle as they are just seven points better than the drop zone ahead of the final nine league outings this season.
Wilshere is in line to make appearance number 11 for Bournemouth when they play the Saints following his transfer as a free agent earlier this season. He was at West Ham United before the club terminated his contract in September 2020.
