Wilshere put in an outstanding display scoring a goal in each half to move Arsenal a significant step closer to qualification to the knockout stages of the competition.

With 12 points already in the bank, the Gunners will secure their spot in the last 16 if they don't lose by three or more goals to Napoli in their final group game.

The England midfielder put Arsenal 1-0 up after 28 seconds, and speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Wilshere claimed that the start helped the whole team.

Wilshere said: "It was a great start to the game for all of us.

"I think that gave us confidence. We lost the ball and won it back and hit them on the counter which we seem to be doing a lot this season and it gave us a great start.

"It gives everyone a boost really. Not just the players but the fans and when the fans are singing you can really feel the positivity in the stadium. We've scored at important times this season so hopefully we can keep that going."

Wilshere doubled Arsenal's advantage in the second half and it was a goal he thought the whole team deserved praise for.

He added: "The second goal was about the team. Mesut (Ozil) could have had a shot but he pulled it across for me and it was an easy goal for me to put in.

"Overall it's a tough group and we've got to go to Naples now and that's a difficult place to go to. English sides have struggled there before.

"But, we'll recover for that and now we focus on a big game on Saturday."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
