Wilshere is relishing the chance to help Arsenal in the title race when he heads toChelsea with Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sent Wilshere to Dean Court in the summer in the hope that the 24-year-old would get some valuable minutes under his belt after several injury-ravaged seasons in north London.
The England star has been praised for his displays under Eddie Howe this campaign, with the Cherries sitting tenth in the Premier League, and he’s clearly full of confidence ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.
‘Of course, I want Arsenal to do well so hopefully we can beat them and do Arsenal afavour,’ Wilshere told Sky Sports.
Antonio Conte’s men host Bournemouth off the back of an 11-game winning streak in the English top flight which Wilshere is determined to bring to an end.
The midfielder endeared himself to Arsenal supporters once again this week by proving that he still holds a grudge with the Gunners’ bitter rivals Tottenham. Read more »
Jack Wilshere has hit back at critics who have claimed that he has no future at Arsenal.
The midfielder joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal in the summer. This has been seen as a major step down in his career given that he has been an England regular whenever he has been fit. Wilshere came through the ranks at Arsenal and is widely regarded as one of the talented England midfielder around. However, his career has been cut short heavily due to injuries and he has not played 90 minutes of league game for a couple of years now.
Some have suggested that Arsene Wenger’s decision to finally let Wilshere leave – even if it is on a loan deal – is a sign that the Frenchman has given up on the England international. Arsenal have been extremely patient with the player through long periods of injuries. Remarkably, the midfielder has featured in less than 15 games in each of the last three seasons. Rather than give up completely on the 24-year-old, Wenger has decided to give him one last opportunity. Read more »
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere received a major shock to his international career after being left out of the England national team squad by new manager Sam Allardyce.
The player has had extreme bad luck with regard to injuries, but he did play in a couple of matches at the Euro 2016. Wilshere was expected to continue under Allardyce as one of the talented youngsters in the squad, but his absence comes as a major shock. The former Bolton and West Ham manager announced his squad for the upcoming World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Slovakia.
As expected, Allardyce was put forth the question of leaving out Wilshere and he claimed that this decision was taken on the back of the player’s poor appearance record for his club. The midfielder is yet to start a league match this season after featuring in both games as a substitute. Arsenal have taken the surprise decision of loaning out the midfielder in the hope of giving him more first-team action. Wilshere will find no shortage of interested parties and he is also no stranger to a loan move after having spent a short period at Bolton in 2010. In his eight seasons at Arsenal, Wilshere has managed only 157 appearances in all competitions thus averaging around 20 games a season.

There are many football legends that often become bigger than the teams they are part of.
As a result, there is much expected out of them, often too much more than what should be expected out of a single player in a game that depends on team participation and strategies. Jack Wilshere is given such a responsibility often which is understandable as he definitely helped the England team
to pass the qualifying round for Euro 2016 which occurred in 2014. With the performance that he provided his coach has definitely come to rely on him, but it is often difficult for players to showcase the same kind of playful spirit often, leading to disappointment. It is often the fault in the strategy rather than blaming the single player for not being able to perform.
