Once a Gunner always a Gunner, that’s what Wilshere is. Wilshere made his first start for Bournemouth after joining the club on loan from Arsenal. And we all know what the favorite number of every gunner is. So Wilshere did everything to concede 4 goals. That wasn’t an easy task but he strived, struggled to make it happen and at the end he was victorious.
He was committed from the beginning, he first lost an easy ball to Fernandinho who missed the ensuing goal scoring opportunity. But that didn’t stop Wilshere who then brought down Nolito on the edge of the box, smooth and calm. And De Bruyne made no mistake scoring from the free kick. The joy on the face of Wilshere was enormous. He was probably thinking to himself, one down three to go. Wilshere then again gave the ball away to City but Boruc, who was not on the same page as Wilshere, stopped Nolito’s strike. Wilshere then was delighted to see his wish come true as Iheanacho scored in his second consecutive match.
And then City doubled the lead after the halftime thanks to goals from Sterling and Gundogan. With his job done with Manchester City leading 4-0, Wilshere left the field two minutes later. “Four Nil”. Wenger must be proud of his boy.
