While Mesut Ozil was hogging all the headlines for his otherworldly goal against Newcastle this weekend, Jack Wilshere quietly put in an excellent shift from midfield exploiting little pockets of space in opposition territory.
One such instance saw him recieve a pass, under pressure from 3 defenders and still manage to navigate through them successfully.
The diminutive midfielder produced a sublime backheel to shift the ball back towards his holding partner, wrong footing his markers entirely. No wonder Arsenal fans consider him on par with some of the best in the world.
