Arsenal continued their great start to the Europa League campaign with a tough victory against Red Star in Belgrade on Thursday evening.
With ten minutes to go, it looked like the game would fizzle out. However, with time running out Jack Wilshere played a sublime ball to Theo Walcott, who found Olivier Giroud, who in turn found the net.
And it was the man who set the first goal up who received much of the praise from Arsenal fans after the game…and that man is Jack Wilshere.
The 25-year-old has had the most disappointing spell of an injury ravaged career during the last few months. Having made no impact at Bournemouth and yet more injuries meant that Wilshere started the season back at Arsenal with no idea as to what his future holds.
Tonight’s performance however, was simply incredible. Wilshere dominated the midfield from start to finish and was the sole reason that Arsenal left Belgrade with all three points.
After the final whistle, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to heap praise onto Wilshere…
Jack Wilshere is well and truly back to his best. Sublime player to watch.
