Piers Morgan has claimed that Jack Wilshere should be starting ahead of Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal team.

The England international came on as a second-half substitute in Arsenal’s 3-1 win against Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Wilshere came on as a replacement for Alex Iwobi and impressed in the final 20 minutes or so at the Emirates Stadium.

Indeed, the England international played a role in Hector Bellerin’s goal as the Spanish defender polished off a 3-1 win.

Wilshere has struggled to secure regular first-team football at the north London club over the past two or three seasons.

And the England star was even sent out on a season-long loan at Bournemouth last term in search of a regular action.

Outspoken Arsenal fan Morgan claimed that Wilshere should in fact be starting ahead of Wales international Aaron Ramsey in the Gunners team.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: “Wilshere’s having a stormer. So good to have him back. I’d pick him over Ramsey every time. #afc @JackWilshere”

Arsenal will make the short trip across London to face defending Premier League champions Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners signed Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in a club-record £52m deal in July.

Arsenal’s other summer signing Sead Kolasinac got on the score sheet in a 3-1 win against Cologne.
