Arsene Wenger full of praise for Arsenal star Jack Wilshere

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is pleased with the progress midfielder Jack Wilshere has made this season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been singing the praises of Jack Wilshere.

The midfielder appears to have come into form in recent weeks, both for the Gunners and for England.

The 22-year-old’s development over the past two or so seasons has not been as much as he would have wanted, but this campaign he appears to have regained his confidence.

Wilshere has also been getting regular games this season, and Wenger has explained just why the youngster is now getting back to his best.

‘He’s developing well because he’s been a consistent presence in the team’, Arsenal’s official website quotes the Frenchman as saying. ‘The top level today demands that you play every week. He improves and progresses as he plays every week and that improves his quality.

‘He’s back to where he was physically and he has more experience today. His final ball is better and he has kept his penetrative capacity with the ball.

‘He has a good mix between threading the ball behind the defence and making the difference individually. That is Jack back to his best level’.

In six Premier League appearances this season, Wilshere has scored one goal, created five chances and has a pass accuracy of 83%. His shot accuracy is 75% and he has won 50% of his duels.

Wilshere will be a key player for Arsenal on Saturday when they take on Hull City at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are expected to win the Premier League clash, and the Englishman will hope to continue his good run of form.
