England worldwide Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, has seemingly overcome a torrid run of injuries. You don't get that much time on the ball.
He has been particularly profligate since last netting in a 5-0 win over Huddersfield Town, with Arsenal following up their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United with draws on the road against Southampton and West Ham. "It was a moment, but I would say for the majority of the game we have to praise the boys for how disciplined they were and the defenders for how well they stuck to their task against a good team who caused us a lot of problems". "However, this game, followed by Newcastle United at home could shape a better second half of the season, if the Hammers can come through unscathed". That will look after itself and when it's the right time, I'm sure the boss will pull me so we can have a chat.
The Gunners dominated for large periods at the London Stadium but they struggled to create clear-cut opportunities as they made it just two wins from nine away fixtures this season.More news: Dana White and Bob Arum shoot down potential Pacquiao-McGregor boxing match
"So there are good signs and maybe we can keep this level of performance up but the performances will have to change because we'll be playing against a different type of opposition. When you receive it you always have to check your shoulder because there's not much space in behind the midfield against teams like West Ham".
But after beating Chelsea on the weekend, Moyes admitted to being "thrilled" with his ever-improving side. I'd snap him up all day long, I really would.
"But we've tightened up, we've not conceded any goals in the last couple of games, and we were a bit unfortunate against Man City".
"We have needed them in the three games".
