Jack Wilshere: How I’d feel if Arsenal won Premier League title this season
The on-loan Arsenal midfielder addresses the potential emotions he'd feel if the Gunners won the title without him
Jack Wilshere has admitted that it would be a little bit strange to watch Arsenal win the Premier League title this season.
The England international moved to Bournemouth on a season-long loan from Arsenal in the summer transfer window in pursuit of regular first-team football following an injury-hit spell at The Emirates.
Wilshere was facing increased competition for a starting spot this season after Arsene Wenger signed Switzerland international Granit Xhaka in a £33m deal from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in May.
Arsenal are in second place in the Premier League table and three points adrift of leaders Chelsea after 14 games thanks to their 5-1 win against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday evening.
Wilshere helped Bournemouth seal a memorable 4-3 comeback against Liverpool at the Vitality Stadium on his 12th appearance for the Cherries since his loan switch to the south coast.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Bournemouth’s 4-3 win against Liverpool, Wilshere discussed what it would feel like to watch Arsenal end their Premier League title drought without the England midfielder.
“I’d be happy for them. Of course it would be a little bit strange because I’m not there and I’d see the celebrations,” Wilshere said.
“I’m an Arsenal man and I’ve been at Arsenal for many years. I want them to do really well. They deserve to win something – even the Premier League.”
