Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has blamed his miss for failing to secure the win over West Ham.
The England international started his first Premier League match of the season at the London Stadium, and despite impressing, was unable to help his side secure all three points.
Wilshere has now expressed his joy at his display and his return to the first-team, and is keen to build on his form as the season continues.
Wilshere said: ‘I felt good. I played a few games this year, but not in the Premier League obviously. I’ve played in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup.
‘I’m fit and happy to get my opportunity tonight. I thought I did alright – maybe there’s a little bit more to come but I’m happy.”
Jack goes on to relive the miss which could have opened the scoring for his side after 70 minutes, with the belief that he could well have secured victory had he simply managed to steer the ball toward goal.
‘I haven’t seen it back. It happened really quick and it was on my weaker right foot but I should have done better,’ he said.
“I should have hit the target. ‘It sat up a little bit but I should have hit the target and probably won us the game.’
Is Wilshere being tough on himself? Was it a very difficult take-down? Does he deserve to keep his place in the starting XI?
