Should Jack Wilshere stay at Arsenal or leave? 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Jack Wilshere is one of the most polarising players in world football, and that isn’t a ‘shocking’ statement to make. The Englishman has had an extremely inconsistent career over the years as a member of Arsenal Football Club, and now, the question of whether or not he’ll remain at the Emirates continues to plague the Gunners’ season.

We’ve experienced this kind of thing over the last twelve months with Alexis Sanchez, and it seems as if history is doomed to repeat itself. Of course, the two men are incredibly different both on and off the pitch, but there are certainly similarities in the way the media are portraying this whole thing.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth to fall further behind in the race for top-four spots. The big news prior to the game was Alexis Sanchez being omitted from the Gunners squad with speculation that he may be close to a move away from the north London club.

Bournemouth had the first attempt of the game on four minutes. Charlie Daniels cross from the left fell for Adam Smith of the edge of the area and the full-back pulled his effort just past Petr Cech’s left-hand post.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to the south coast to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, as the Gunners attempt to keep pace with the league’s top-four.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games after one win and two draws in the English top-flight. However, last time out the Cherries drew 2-2 with Wigan in the FA Cup third round. They now face a trip to the DW Stadium for a replay.

Eddie Howe’s side are just a point above the relegation zone, despite that improvement in recent form. One of the home side’s main problems of late has been conceding goals, as they have conceded two or more goals in four of their last five top-flight outings.

Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.

The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season.

Arsenal travels to St Mary’s to face Southampton on Sunday lunchtime, as the Gunners look to return to the Premier League’s top-four.

The home side are enduring an inconsistent campaign so far. The Saints are currently 11th in the Premier League after collecting just 17 points so far this season.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have won just one of their last six games in the top-flight while losing three of their last five Premier League outings. Last time out, the team from the south coast drew 1-1 with rivals Bournemouth.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is considering leaving north London in January in search of first-team football.

The report claims that Wilshere is desperate to play regular first-team football to improve his chances of going to next year’s World Cup. Regular first-team action in the Premier League seems unlikely at the moment for the midfielder.

Unlikely to have a future at Arsenal

Wilshere will have just six months left on his contract at Arsenal in January. It is unclear whether he will be offered a new deal in north London. The fact that he has yet to make an appearance in the Premier League suggests that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not believe the midfielder is in his long-term plans.
