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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
