‘It would be strange to see Arsenal win title’ Wilshere claims

Jack Wilshere admitted that it would feel strange to see his parent club Arsenal will the Premier League title without him.

The Gunners climbed up to second in the league table this weekend thanks to the help of Jack Wilshere’s on loan side Bournemouth, who earned a hard-fought win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Wilshere played the full 90 minutes of the match, where his side came back from a 3-1 deficit to steal a late 4-3 victory, and the club moved to congratulate their youth product on the victory.

Following on from the match, Wilshere answered some questions on his current stance when it comes to Arsenal’s title push.

“I’d be happy for them [if Arsenal won the title],” the 24-year-old said.

“Someone asked me if it would be strange, but I’ve been there for that long and I know the manager and we have a good relationship. I know that’s the one he wants the most.

“He’s hungry for that and he’s built a team over the years which now he feels – and a lot of people feel – is ready to really challenge.

“I’d be happy for them. Of course, it would be a little bit strange because I’m not there and you’d see all the celebrations, but I’m an Arsenal man, I’ve been there for many years, and I want them to do well.”

Should Wilshere be annoyed or happy if we were to pick up the Premier League in his absence? Would that assure him that his future was elsewhere?

    Strange? I would be gutted if I was him.

    So lets hope he is gutted come May and then comes back with fire in his belly to take us on to back to back titles.

    Have to say though, I am still not seeing enough from him to suggest he would get in ahead of our first choice 3 of coquelin Santi and ozil. He would struggle to get ahead of the back up 3 of elneny, xhaka and ramsey at the moment hence the loan was required.

    Of course Wilshere will be happy if we win the title. No question about that. His DNA is Arsenal.

    OT: I hope Arsene close his case of searching Coquelin’s ideal duet. It’s obviously Granit Xhaka. We were play more fast and more direct against West Ham. The big score not just only because WH played open game or individual inspiration from Alexis, but mainly because our quick transition at midfield axis. I said it many times and it was proven : Coquelin pair with Xhaka is our best option when Santi out for long treatment. Period.

    Wenger must rotate according to teams We facing..
    4example Everton — U cant play Iwobe or Teo against Bolasie his is powerful and will destroy monreal , So I will play Perz in L-wing his also powerful and can track back and help Monreal..in R-wing i will keep Ox.
