Jack Wilshere is confident Arsenal’s results will improve over the coming weeks as the team continues to gel.

The England international has only played three times with the likes of Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla after returning from 14 months on the sidelines through injury.

And with Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud also settling into the side, the 20-year-old believes the future is bright following Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at Schalke.

“Obviously we had a two-goal lead and let it slip, but we’ll take the point,” Wilshere told Arsenal Player.

“It is a hard place to come, they are a great team with great fans and we have had two good games [against them]. We’re pleased we got a point.

“The [Klaas-Jan Huntelaar] goal before half time killed us really. I think if we had gone in 2-0 up it was finished, but we showed great character in the second half.

“They came at us and we knew they would be pumped because of the goal just before half time. We defended well, and if we defend like that in every game then we will keep clean sheets.

“We still have a lot of new players. I have only played with them three times and we feel we are getting better and better as a team, and that we are bonding. Hopefully things will just get better from here.”
