Arsenal star Jack Wilshere, who was a part of the Gunners side that crushed West Bromwich Albion 4-1 in their final Premier League match of the season, was found in a positive mood after the game ended.
The Englishman was quoted telling reporters during the post-match conference: “We’ve given the fans something to remember. The first half had some of the best performances we’ve played this season. Every time we went forward and got into the final third we looked dangerous.”
Wilshere said that the north Londoners could have scored even 6 or 7 goals, going by the way they played in the first half. However, he added, his side ‘dropped off a little bit’ in the second period, which prevented them from scoring any more goals in the tie. Nevertheless, the player said that the team are pleased with the way they performed in the first half, and that he’s happy with the goal he scored.
Speaking in detail about his goal, which resulted from a thundering shot on target, Wilshere said that he was lucky to score from that, and on any other occasion, it may have not gone in.
Meanwhile, the Englishman also praised his teammate Theo Walcott, who hit a first half hattrick in the match. Wilshere said taht Walcott looked sharp right from the start, and that he gave the team ‘something different’. He pointed out that the forward likes to ‘run in behind’, that the ‘timing of his runs are perfect’ and that he possesses immense pace to make up for even his imperfect runs. Wilshere concluded by adding that Walcott was deadly in front of the goal too.
