So far this season the Arsenal and England midfield star has completed exactly zero minutes in the Premier League, so of course it is a little bit early to be talking about him getting a new contract or once again being a key member of the Arsenal first team, but after what was expected from him I think we have to be impressed.
A lot of people thought that Wilshere and Arsenal would part company during the summer transfer window, and when that did not happen not too many gave him a chance of playing much, if at all. Fitness and form were the main problems, as well as that horrendous injury record, but despite no EPl minutes yet Wilshere has now completed two full games for the Gunners.
Not only that, but he was the stand out player in both the win over Doncaster in the League cup and last night’s Europa League away victory at BATE Borisov. He looks strong and not afraid to put himself about, which is very good news, but best of all he looks to have that bit of magic back in his boots.
Early days Gooners, I know, and we have been here before only to see him break something and be out of action for a year, but can we start to say that the old Jack Wilshere is really back?
