Wilshere need to start getting games in the league

Slovenia v England - UEFA EURO 2016 Qualifier

Since the return of Jack Wilshere from his loan spell which he brought a reoccurring injury, he has not started a premier league game.

This is understandable because he just became match fit some couple of weeks ago. Knowing Jack Wilshere that he is that player that like getting into every tackle, it makes sense to integrate him slowly into the first team.

So playing him on the cup games and in the Europa is a good way to start. However, it’s over a month now that he has been featuring regularly in a cup game; he has only gotten a 80th minute substitution against Everton in the premier league.

This even came after several call by the fans to see him play. His outstanding performance which has won him man of the match in the cup games has also necessitated the decision to play him in the league.

Arsene Wenger has stated clearly that the 25-year-old will get playing time as the season progresses, that he is unwilling to rush him into the league. This is due to Wilshere himself. Wenger is making a valid point, but for how long?

The current contract situation that is going on with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil does not make anything certain about the future of the pair. These are key and integral players for the Gunners.

If they eventually leave, says January, it is unlikely Wenger get a replacement immediately that will fit into the squad right away.

Wenger has played without the pair in games, starting with the likes of Welbeck and Iwobi in their respective positions but we know this will not stand the test of time, while you can get back to your winning streak with free bets uk.

Having Wilshere, a natural play maker, who has shown his quality severally in time past, it is better to integrate him into the squad early before January. A midfield trio of Xhaka, Wilshere and Ramsey has to be tested now.

Playing them now brings about the synergy in which will be useful to the team.  It is difficult to drop Mesut Ozil for Wilshere at the moment but instead of a direct substitution between Lacazette and Giroud that is made in every game, Wenger could push Sanchez upfront and bring in Wilshere in the midfield. It is a suggestion, but whatever Wenger decides to do with Wilshere, it has so start now.
