"They have quality everywhere going forward.


"Credit to players, we didn't show any weakness – I'm frustrated we couldn't keep it 3-2 but it was a fantastic game with quality on both sides. We had quick combos, they had fantastic counter attacks."

Last night the English international Jack Wilshere made his third consecutive start of the season for the Gunners since October 2014 and displayed wonderful football for them.

About Wilshere’s performance, Wenger voiced: "I think he is one of the players who played with quality in the first half, determination,"

"Jack is never frozen, but what he did in the second half was like the rest of the team, I liked what he did. He's better now than he was in the last two or three years, I think he is positive overall and is in a very good shape at the moment."
