Wilshere getting back to his best at Arsenal

Jack Wilshere Arsenal MidfielderJack Wilshere confirmed he is making considerable progress, after the midfielder put in a fine display in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over West Brom at the Emirates.

The 20-year-old has been making a solid recovery since his return to action in late October after a 17-month absence due to an ankle injury.

“Every game that goes by I feel better and better fitness-wise,” Wilshere told The Guardian. “I may be at 90%. When I get to 100% I will really show what I can do.”

Wilshere, who made a return to international duty as a substitute in England’s 4-2 defeat by Sweden in November, has enjoyed playing alongside Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla during his revival.

“Mikel is great,” Wilshere said. “Tactically, his positioning is the best around … and he is great with the younger players. You can talk to him on and off the pitch. I speak to him during the game.

“There is a good understanding there. He knows I want to go forward and get on the scoresheet but he is the same … There is a bit of both but he lets me go more than he does.

“I think the partnership has a great potential, especially with Santi in front of us. With him, me and Mikel, I think this midfield could really blossom in the next few months.”

Arsenal will be on their travels in their next three fixture, with a trip to Bradford in the Capital One Cup, followed by league matches away at Reading and Wigan.
