Managing to beat a Chelsea team managed by Jose Mourinho for the first time on Sunday was a major morale booster for Arsene Wenger and his team. The Frenchman had previously failed in 13 encounters to beat Mourinho, but his team secured a 1-0 victory at the new Wembley.
This was the second consecutive Community Shield lifted by Arsenal. This is in addition to the two FA Cup titles that they have won in the last two seasons. These victories have given Arsenal a major boost in terms of confidence according to midfielder Jack Wilshere, who feels that the club can now go on and win the league title.
It has been more than a decade since the gunners last were crowned as the Premier League champions. However, they showed title winning form in the second half of last season. A run of 18 victories from the last 26 league matches meant that Arsenal finished third in the table. For a while, they appeared to have a long shot at the title. This was a tremendous improvement compared to recent seasons when Arsenal have largely been regarded as contenders only for the fourth spot. Wilshere also feels that the addition of Petr Cech is a major step towards the title. Read the rest of this entry »

Jack Wilshere is only 23 year old and has his entire career ahead of him but he has already been compared to the likes of Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez.
Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus even said that Jack Wilshere is: ‘’the perfect player’’. However, even with all the praise that he has been receiving, Wilshere struggles trying to find the first team of Arsenal.
Some of the reasons of why Wilshere hasn’t been in the starting lineup of Arsene Wenger is due to injuries while other factors are simply because he hasn’t been performing at the level required to secure a spot in the main team of the Premier League club.
In this Premier League season which concluded a few weeks ago, Wilshere only managed on making 14 league appearances.
Due to the low amounts of appearances that Wilshere has been making, a string of reports and rumors have started to emerge linking the English player to clubs such as: Manchester City and Liverpool. Read the rest of this entry »

The 23 year old English midfielder Jack Wilshere has been out of action since November of 2014 when he sustained an ankle injury which has forced the player to remain on the sidelines of Arsenal for the majority of the season.
The road to recovery of Jack Wilshere has left him out of the pitch for over 4 months but the player is slowly returning to full fitness as he has trained and made a few appearances for Arsenal’s Under-21 squad.
Jack Wilshere is happy to be able to play for the youth team of Arsenal as he is trying to get back to his form but the English player is eager on making it back to the main team of Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere said: “You can play as much as you want in the Under-21s, but you cannot get that intensity of the Premier League. In training here, the little eight-a-side and keep balls is top level, and that is what I need. Everyone looks forward to the training sessions, it is short and sharp, everyone is fighting for a position in the team and you can really tell that.”
Due to the ankle injury that Wilshere sustained a few months ago, the player has spent more time on the sidelines of Arsenal than anything else but Wilshere stated that he has been impressed by what his teammates have been accomplishing, especially after Arsenal claimed their 8th successive Premier League triumph by defeating Burnley with a scoreboard of 0-1.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed a few weeks ago that Jack Wilshere was set to spend more time on the sidelines after facing a setback in his attempts to come back. Wilshere has not played for the club since November 2014.
However, Wenger revealed that the midfielder has suffered a setback and will be undergoing an ankle surgery in order to help him regain his fitness in the best possible way. Speaking ahead of the match with QPR on Wednesday night, Wenger said that he is almost sure that Wilshere will not be fit in time to face Manchester United this weekend.
Arsenal will be travelling to Old Trafford in order to take on the Red Devils in the FA Cup quarter-finals. As with defending champions of the trophy, Arsenal will be looking to put a major fight. However, they have recently been second best when it comes to matches against the big teams. The recent 2-0 win over Manchester City stands out from the crowd of mediocre performances against top teams. Wenger may decide to adopt tactics similar to those used in the win against City. This would help him overcome an injury ravaged team, which is also missing the likes of Matthew Flamini. Read the rest of this entry »

Players like Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, and Steven Gerrard have recently created history in recent years by making 100 appearances for the national team.
They represented Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool during this period. Arsenal are also a big club in English football and their midfielder Jack Wilshere says that he wants to emulate in the records of these players in the near future. Wilshere still remains a long way away from reaching 100 appearances for England, but he does have a long time left in football at just 22 years of age.
Up until now, the 22-year-old has featured in all the 26 matches for England. He could have certainly made more appearances had it not been for the numerous injury problems but he has suffered recently. Read the rest of this entry »
