Eddie Howe has praised Jack Wilshere, who is becoming a key player whilst on loan from Arsenal this season.
The Bournemouth boss was ecstatic when talking about his side’s 6-1 victory over Hull City, his club’s biggest ever win in the English top tier.
“We got the goals today that out attacking play deserved and probably our season’s deserved, because some of our games have been so tight and in some I think we’ve deserved to score more than we have done,” Howe said.
“We get our reward today. There were a few moments early in the game where we got into some great positions and we didn’t pull the trigger, but then when the chances came we finished them off superbly and that hasn’t always been the case this season.
“We gifted them a goal, but fair play to the players because at that moment the game could have swung either way, but we put our foot down and went again and found the energy to win the game comfortably.”
He went onto praise the input of the on-loan Arsenal man also, who was not credited with any of his side’s six goals or an assist, but remains crucial in his side’s performance.
“He’s improving all the time for me, Jack [Wilshere],” the Bournemouth boss said. “He had a big bearing on the game today, although maybe not evident initially on the eye, but he’s behind a lot of our good football and yeah he’s improving all the time.”
Jack has certainly settled in nicely with the Cherries, and his fitness appears to be increasing, despite the fact he did not play the full 90 minutes once again this weekend.
The midfielder has remained injury free for over six months for the first-time since 2013, and could finally be turning the corner as he looks to get his career back on track.
Could Jack really go a full season without injury? How much football do you think he would have got had he stayed in North-London this term?
