Gary Neville: What I really think about Jack Wilshere at Arsenal
Gary Neville talks up Jack Wilshere following his recent return to the first team at Arsenal
Gary Neville believes that Jack Wilshere is England’s most talented midfield player along with Adam Lallana following the Arsenal star’s recent return to the fore.
The England international has recently broken back into the first team at The Emirates after having spent last season on loan to Bournemouth.
Wilshere has started Arsenal’s last two Premier League games and earned praise for his solid displays against both West Ham United and Liverpool FC.
The 25-year-old will now be hoping to stay injury free as he looks to stake his claim for a place in the World Cup squad with England next summer.
Neville worked with Wilshere during his time as an England coach and the former Manchester United defender has underlined the importance of the midfielder staying fit in the next few months as he looks to hold down a regular spot in the first team.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Friday night, Neville said: “Wilshere was the most talented English midfield player alongside Adam Lallana.
“Jack’s problems have been through injury. It isn’t through talent. He is a determined character. The injuries keep coming back. His ankles and the way he walks at times, you worry about that.
“His talent is fantastic. He is a really good player.”
Wilshere will be hoping to start for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Thursday night with trip to Crystal Palace.
The north London side are aiming to get back to winning ways in the top flight after their thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool FC at The Emirates last week.
