Arsène Wenger says that Jack Wilshere has questioned his goalscoring record for the Club.

The 21-year-old struck the winner against Swansea on Wednesday night, but it was only his fifth goal in 80 appearances for Arsenal.

Wenger was delighted with Wilshere’s performance against Michael Laudrup’s side, and hopes he can become a regular on the scoresheet now.

“You can always improve in every area - he himself questions [his goalscoring record],” the manager said.

“The way he took the goal was fantastic, because he didn’t think too much. Sometimes you miss the chances when you have too much time.

“He took his chance in a spontaneous way. It’s good that he adds that to his game, because he gets in situations where you have to finish.”
