Arsène Wenger says Jack Wilshere's first goal against Marseille shows he is cooler in front of goal.

Wilshere's brace on Tuesday took his tally to four this season, already doubling his previous best of two in a campaign.

Wenger described the England midfielder's first-minute strike against the French side as "stunning" and admits it surprised him.

We have him and [Aaron] Ramsey who can score now and that's a huge improvement

"It demands vision, it demands calmness, it demands quality execution and he had all that in that goal," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "I would say his [first goal was] absolutely stunning.

"I must say I was even surprised by the way he took that goal. That shows his belief in his finishing has gone up a lot."

"We have him and [Aaron] Ramsey who can score now and that's a huge improvement," Wenger added. "Before we had Ramsey, two goals per year and Wilshere, two goals per year.

"To see them scoring goals is magnificent."
