Wilshere blasts Wenger critics

Arsenal midfielder jack Wilshere has hit out at the criticism of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, describing it as a “joke” that the Frenchman has come under fire after their poor start to the season.

Wenger recently celebrated 15 years in charge of the club but has only won two of their first seven Premier League encounters, including the 8-2 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United last month and last week’s 2-1 defeat by local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Wilshere, who is sidelined with an ankle injury that will keep him out of action until at least February, believes that despite his side’s slow start they can still finish in the top four come the end of the season.

"We started a bit slowly but we still feel we can finish in the top four." He said.

Wilshere is one of a growing injury list for the Gunners while a summer exodus including Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri undermined their start to the season, but Wilshere insists that he can fill the void left by Cesc Puma boots, and he has no plans to leave having recently penned a new five year deal.

"No disrespect to Manchester City but Arsenal is the perfect home for me right now.” He commented.

"Some players have got their price but, to be honest, that's not the way I look at the game.

"All I think about is playing at the highest level and in the top competitions so I can measure myself against the best in the world.

"I really am happy at Arsenal at the minute. Obviously, I want to win things and I want to do it with Arsenal."
