Wilshere and Walcott both impressed in the EUROPA last night against FC Bate Borisov by scoring goals not only to enable Arsenal finish well in group H but give Wenger selection head ache.
Arsenal triumph over the Belarusian football team with 6-0. Goals coming from defender Mathew Debuchy, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Polyacov (og), Olivier Giroud (p), Muhammed Elneny.
Wilshere had impressed Wenger in the first meeting of the two sides in which the English side won 4-2 and the return leg confirmed to Wenger Jack is actually on his way up as he initially claimed.
According to the 25-year-old midfielder, who scored his first goal since May 2015, after being declared man of the match said all they can do when opportunity shows is to give their boss headache.
“All we can do when we get our opportunity is give the manager a headache.”
Similarly, his country teammate with whom their woes have had resemblance in the recent times starting from being dropped in England squad to not starting any single premier league match for the club, Walcott also has a spirit of giving Wenger headache.
“There is plenty of competition when you play for Arsenal. We are doing our best to give the manager a headache to pick us for the team” Said the 29-year-old striker.
Although Walcott who had just scored his 4th goal of the season seemed to have lacked fitness, besides his goal, he managed to force Bate goal keeper Scherbitski to a close range save, curled a free kick past the post and had an attempt cleared off the line.
Meanwhile the two were impressive, their opponents were entirely strength-less which begs the question, should both be rated high and Wenger be excited?
Nevertheless, the win by entire different first XI from the squad that lost 3-1 to Manchester United on Saturday is moral boasting, and prepares the team for their next tricky encounter away to Southampton in Sunday’s early kickoff [12:00 GMT/ 15:00 EST].
