Jack Wilshere believes that he is starting to hit top form again following a consistent run of games in the Arsenal team.

The England international was arguably the Gunners’ stand-out player on Sunday as they lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

That performance came on the back of some outstanding displays, most notably against Manchester City, as the 22-year-old moves into top gear again.

Ever since my first injury, it’s always taken a run of games - probably between five and 10 - to get back to my best

“I feel good and I’m always looking to improve, no matter what,” Wilshere said. “For a player of my age, I’ve missed a lot of football so I’m just trying to play as much as I can, train as much as I can and I’ve always said that when I get fully fit you’ll see the best of me.

“I said at the start of the season that it was going to take some time to get back to my best. Ever since my first injury, it’s always taken a run of games - probably between five and 10 - to get back to my best.

“Some players are different, some players come back and are at their best straight away. But some need a run of games and I’m one of those players.”

While Wilshere was satisfied with the Gunners’ display at Stamford Bridge, he was frustrated to leave empty-handed.

“We’ve played well but at this level, against the top three in this league, when you’re on top you need to make the opportunities count and if you don’t then you’re going to get punished,” he said.
