Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Wilshere performance: 'A true No.10 in the hole'

Wilshere 2

Arsenal won impressively against Sunderland on Saturday, with Jack Wilshere impressing in midfield.

With Chelsea snatching a last-gasp victory against Everton earlier in the day, Arsenal would have known the importance of a home win against Sunderland.  And that result happened in impressive fashion, the Gunners winning 4-1 courtesy of a brace from Olivier Giroud and a goal apiece from Laurent Koscielny and Tomas Rosicky.

It was the Rosicky goal that will generate many of the headlines in the coming days, the Czech midfielder's finish akin to Jack Wilshere's goal against Norwich City that was hailed as one of the best of the season.

But for all the goals scored, it is Wilshere's performance that I want to talk about.  The England midfielder was mightily impressive against the Black Cats, with a 91% pass-completion rate and three key passes made for teammates.

He also made two effective tackles and dictated the play to allow his teammates to ultimately get the much-needed goals.

In recent weeks Wilshere has really stepped up in the absence of Aaron Ramsey and the dip in form of Mesut Ozil, and Saturday's match was no exception.

But what did the fans think of his performance?  We took to Twitter after the match and below is a selection of what we found:
