Jack Wilshere says he’s feeling good about his performances this season claiming regular game time in the centre of midfield is helping him find consistency.
The England international has, when fit, been regularly deployed in his preferred number 10 position excelling against Manchester City and looking lively against both Sp*rs and Chelsea.
Set to anchor England’s midfield in their Euro 2016 qualifiers with San Marino and Estonia, the 23-year-old reflected on his season so far:
“I feel good and I’m always looking to improve, no matter what. For a player of my age, I’ve missed a lot of football so I’m just trying to play as much as I can, train as much as I can and I’ve always said that when I get fully fit you’ll see the best of me.
“I said at the start of the season that it was going to take some time to get back to my best. Ever since my first injury, it’s always taken a run of games – probably between five and 10 – to get back to my best.
“Some players are different, some players come back and are at their best straight away. But some need a run of games and I’m one of those players.”
In other news, Wojciech Szczesny says Arsenal must kick on after the international break but believes the result against Chelsea, while damaging, wasn’t down to a poor performance.
“I thought it was a very even game, but Chelsea have an ability to keep clean sheets at home and I thought they were very good, they took their chances with two brilliant moments.
“One, the brilliant run from Hazard that led to the penalty. On the second goal, the ball from Cesc and the finish. Sometimes you’ve got to take your hat off to the brilliance of the opposition.
“We’ve had a tough run so far. But I’d like to think that our start has been solid, not as good as we expected from ourselves but I believe that, after the international break, we can push on and get more points.
“You can’t say we’ve played badly against Chelsea, it’s just that we’ve come up against a very strong side, probably the favourites to win the Premier League at this point.”
Arseblog News sees where Wojciech is coming from, but probably (much like you dear readers) we don’t much fancy taking our hat off to Chelsea’s brilliance.
Next time we’d rather piss in our hat and throw said headpiece in Mourinho’s face. We’re bloody bored and fed up of losing to such a horrible pack of jarring swag-bellied varlots.
