Jack Wilshere doesn’t believe that he has been forced to alter his game since Mesut Ozil’s arrival at Arsenal.

The 25-year-old Germany international, who is set to miss the clash against England at Wembley, has scored three goals and made five assists since a £42.5m switch to the Gunners from Real Madrid.

Wilshere hasn’t featured alongside Arsenal’s club-record signing as much as the Englishman would have liked after a string of injuries hampered the midfielder’s start to the season.

But the England international is thrilled to have such a “top, top player” as his team-mate, adding that he’s followed Ozil since the playmaker’s eye-catching impact at 2010 World Cup.

“I don’t think my game has changed. I haven’t played that much,” Wilshere said.

“He’s been superb since he’s come.

“He’s a top, top player and he’s been like that for years. Ever since the 2010 World Cup, I’ve been watching him. He’s a great player.

“He’s one of a few for Germany. You’ve got players like [Marco] Reus. They have a great midfield. It’s going to be a tough night for us but we’ll be ready for that.”
