Wilshere joined the Hammers on a free transfer this summer but he is yet to make a valuable contribution.
The former Arsenal man is still getting to grips at his new club and this injury will be a big blow for him.
Wilshere’s career has been plagued with injuries so far and the West Ham fans aren’t too happy with the latest knock he has picked up.
Losing the England midfielder is a bit of blow for Pellegrini as well. He was their only creative central midfielder. With the likes of Lanzini injured, West Ham could use some creative players like Wilshere.
Here is how the West Ham fans reacted to Wilshere’s injury news on Twitter.
You can get the player out of Arsenal but you can’t get the Arsenal out of the player

West seem to have a knack in buying players that can’t string five consecutive games together.
