Wilshere watches Chelsea U18 v Young Guns: Arsenal have 'best fans'

Academy graduate Jack Wilshere has commended the Gooners, while Olivier Giroud claims the remaining Premier League fixture are cup finals.

Currently in the physio's room as he recovers from a foot injury sustained during an England international match when a challenge from Daniel Agger left him with a hairline fracture, Arsenal superstar Jack Wilshere, 22, is still in and around the club and was even present during the young guns trip to Stamford Bridge, where the Under-18s side looked to seek revenge for the 6-0 senior bashing Chelsea gave the North Londoners earlier in the season.

Arsenal though were unable to leave West London with a draw and were beaten 2-1 in the first leg of the semifinal of the Youth Cup, yet Chuba Akpom gave the young guns reason to be optimistic of overturning the result for the return trip. Charlie Colkett and Alex Kiwomya scored for the Blues.

While the vast majority of Chelsea's manor contained empty seats, the Arsenal section was packed, prompting one of those in attendance - Wilshere - to marvel at his club's fanbase.

Wilshere is due to return from injury on April 28.
