The England international midfielder is again on the sidelines after suffering a hairline fracture of his left leg at the end of July but is working his way back to full fitness in a bid to play a part in Arsenal’s Premier League title push.

However, the often injured 23-year-old is making sure not to put any extra pressure on his comeback by refraining to place a date on any potential return.

“It’s going well,” he told Arsenal Player.

“I’m working as hard as I can to try to come back. I know what it takes because unfortunately I’ve been injured a few times in my career and I know what it takes to come back. I’m not going to rush it.

“I’ll make sure my body’s right and at the moment I’m feeling good.

“Mentally this one has been the toughest to take because I had a big injury last year, came back, got myself fit, back in good form, played for England. Then I cut my holiday short for two weeks and came in to try to get myself right for this season.

“I thought, ‘This season I need to be fit for the whole season and go into the Euros with a whole season behind me’.

“Unfortunately on the last day of pre-season I got injured so it was probably the toughest one for me to take.”
