Wilshere relieved to end Arsenal goal drought

The Gunners boss has stuck to fielding different teams in the Premier League and Europa League, with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere being limited to European competition.

Neither midfielder Wilshere nor forward Walcott have started a Premier League for the Gunners this season, but both found the net as Arsenal rounded off their Group H campaign with a comprehensive victory, BBC reports.

"I believe that it was done in a stylish way and in a technically-high quality game from our side", he said.

Wilshere's first goal in over two years nearly sent a message of its own to Wenger who witnessed the Gunners academy product involved heavily in three of the six goals Arsenal scored.

The match kicks off at 8.05 so the team news should be with us at around 7.

Wilshere played in a central No. 10 role as Wenger started with a back-four formation for the first time all season, and made it 3-0 with a well-placed strike shortly before half-time.

"If we are called upon from the bench we have to be ready and support the boys who are playing".

Is Vine Coming Back? V2 Announced By Video App Founder
The original Vine was shut down in January this year after it was acquired by Twitter for an estimated $20 million. So today, Dom Hofmann , the founder of Vine made a major announcement that had Vine fans spitting with excitement.


As expected, the attendance for the game was rather less than the 54,000 tickets apparently sold by Arsenal.

Wenger, though, said the low attendance was only natural and that it didn't have an effect on the players.

"It's true that you prefer the ground to be full, but tonight there was not a lot at stake on the competitive side".

"When they met for the last worldwide break, Giroud has played more minutes than [Alexandre] Lacazette".

The Belarussians travelled to the Emirates knowing anything less than a win would mean that they failed to make the knock-out rounds of the competition, but our side refused to roll over despite having already cemented their place as group winners in their previous outing. "You respect people through their attitude and their attitude is fantastic".

"You have looked around last night in the Champions League in game number six, I have seen many grounds not full, or half empty".

"We've had a good group stage this year".
