Twitter reacts to AWFUL first-half Wilshere performance

Jack Wilshere was run ragged as Arsenal were left trailing at the break and Gunner fans on twitter certainly weren't going to let him live it down.

Arsenal were left reeling at half-time after constant waves of Manchester City attacks left them 2-1 down at the break. The fingers of blame were pointing in various places, but there was one man taking more flak than others... Jack Wilshere!

The England international was slammed for his 'tired' performance in the first-half, criticised for both poor ball retention and his halfhearted defensive contribution. It left many Arsenal fans calling for him to be replaced at half-time either by Santi Cazorla or Tomas Rosicky.

Here is a handful of the tweets aimed at the young Gunner.






Whether or not the player can turn it around in the second half remains to be seen, but he will need to produce magic to turn around public opinion.
