Arsenal 2 Man City 2: Jack Wilshere insists he is pleased with a point after entertaining draw
Jack Wilshere insisted that Arsenal were pleased with a point after Martin Demichelis’s late equaliser earned Manchester City a draw at Emirates Stadium.
The Citizens took the lead in the 28th minute when Sergio Aguero finished from close range.
They’re the champions for a reason and they showed that
But Arsenal fought back and went level thanks to Wilshere’s superb dinked finish over Joe Hart in the 63rd minute.
And Alexis Sanchez looked to have netted the winner with a brilliant shot into the top corner in the 74th minute.
However, City were not to be denied and Demichelis earned the visitors a point when his thumping header beat Wojciech Szczesny.
Wilshere told BT Sport: “Yeah I think so [it was a fair result]. We started well in the first half and could have got a few goals but they’re a great team and came back into it. All Aguero needs is one chance and he proved that.
“In the second half I thought we did enough to win it but in the end we looked tired so we’ll take a point.
“We showed great character to come from a goal down, especially against such a top team. They’re the champions for a reason and they showed that.
“Once we were 2-1 up we would liked to have won the game. We gave away a cheap goal but in the end they had a few chances and could have won so we’re happy with a point.”
The 22-year-old, who was named man of the match, added: “I’m getting fitter and fitter as the games go on, I recovered well after the England game and we felt fresh which I think we saw in the way we started.”
