Even though Jack Wilshere has already admitted that it would probably feel a bit strange to him if Arsenal were to win the Premier League title this season while he is on loan at AFC Bournemouth, he is still very strongly connected to the club he joined as a nine year old.
So Arsenal are still the side that he would prefer to win this tight race for the EPL trophy and although the England international midfielder is set to spend the whole season with the Cherries, at least, he will soon get the chance to help the Gunners in our attempt to catch and overhaul the teams above us in the table.
Next up for Eddie Howe´s team is the trip to face the current league leaders Chelsea on Boxing Day and the Evening Standard reports that Jack has declared his desperate wish to help his parent club by helping his current one to stop Chelsea´s winning run.
And with Antonio Conte having to cope without two key players in Costa and Kante for that game while Bournemouth recently produced a shock win over Liverpool, Wilshere has reasons to hope that he can do us this big favour. He is really finding his form and fitness again on the south coast, so can Jack give Arsenal and his old pals the perfect christmas present a day late_
