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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
