Jack Wilshere: Arsenal now a “joy to watch”

Jack Wilshire believes watching Arsenal is now easy on the eye as they have made great strides over the past couple of seasons.

The Gunners are currently the form team in English football with eight consecutive Premier League victories seeing them move up to second place behind Chelsea in the top-flight standings.

While the seven-point gap to the Blues may be too large to bridge, second place would represent an improvement for Arsene Wenger’s side as they will be able to avoid their annual mid-summer Champions League qualification match.

Next up for the north Londoners is a short trip to Wembley to take on Championship side Reading in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, with Arsenal priced at 1.29 to win and the Royals on offer at 12.00.

And Wilshire feels that the spirit in the camp is one of the main reasons why they have continued to bounce back and find themselves riding high in the league and cup.

“We lost a lot of players from when I started in the first team, a lot of people said Arsenal would never come back but we didn’t listen to them,” said the England midfielder.

“We kept going, added real quality, world-class players to the squad, and the main thing here is the team ethic.”

Wilshire is now on the comeback trail after missing five months of action with an ankle injury and he could feature against Reading.

And, after witnessing the club struggle for a couple of seasons, Wilshere has observed from the sidelines a return to their former playing style during the current campaign.

“It has been totally different this year,” he added. “They have been playing great football and it has been a joy to watch.”
