Arsenal fans on social networking site Twitter want Jack Wilshere to start against Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby this weekend.

The Gunners will take on Tottenham away from home at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

England international midfielder Wilshere has been playing well for Arsenal this season and is now fully fit.

The 26-year-old midfielder has scored one goal and provided two assists in eight Premier League starts for the Gunners so far this campaign.

Wilshere is Arsenal through and through, and knows just what the North London derby means to the fans.

The Englishman is not a very popular figure among the Spurs fans, having led foul-mouthed songs mocking Tottenham back in May 2015 while celebrating Arsenal’s FA Cup triumph during an open-top bus parade, as reported by The Guardian.

Tottenham fans will surely jeer and boo Wilshere and give him a torrid time, but the 26-year-old is mature enough to handle that should he start, as Arsenal fans want him to.
