Arsenal fans were in for a surprise as Jack Wilshere indicated towards a starting spot in the Premier League roster to face Swansea on Saturday. The diminutive playmaker signalled the supporters to look forward to his role in the contest, going as far as to mention the exact timings of tomorrow’s encounter which has all but confirmed his presence in the matchday squad.
A curious case of unfulfilled potential, Wilshere’s journey embodies Arsenal’s struggles since leaving Highbury. However his return to the Emirates after a disappointing loan spell at Bournemouth seems to have injected new lease of life into the once highly rated midfielder.
Wilshere has looked purposeful in his League Cup and Europa League appearances so far, showcasing his characteristic darts and vision. Hence it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger might have awarded the Englishman with a start against the Welsh side.
