Former-Arsenal man Tony Adams has claimed that the Premier League outfit and England need Jack Wilshere back and firing on all cylinders.
Arsenal have been struggling in the league once again following a tough start to the campaign. Six wins along with one draw and four defeats means they are currently 12 points short of Manchester City at the top.
Arsene Wenger’s men are also three points below fourth-placed Chelsea, while they slipped to sixth in the table following Liverpool’s win over West Ham. All in all, it was a terrible weekend for the Gunners.
While things on the table have been bad, they were even worse on the pitch on Sunday. Manchester City dominated the visitors and should have scored more than three goals.
Alexandre Lacazette got one back for the London side, but that only enabled them to lose 3-1. A lot of questions have been asked of the side regarding the manager’s choices, the ability of the players themselves and their own backbone.
One that passed the lips of most Arsenal fans was why did Jack Wilshere not start the game?
Arsenal created very little throughout the match, and they lacked a dynamism in the middle, something that Wilshere is adept at providing.
Former-Arsenal star Tony Adams has also been speaking about the midfielder, telling the Evening Standard: “I’d like him to play even more, to be in the starting XI more often and get back into that England team. We need him both internationally and for the Arsenal”.
“He’s got the history of the club at heart, coming through the youth system. You’d like to think that he has got some kind of emotional attachment to the club”.
