Jack Wilshere was delighted with Arsenal’s first-half performance against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
The Gunners returned to their free-flowing best against Tony Pulis’ side and the England midfielder capped his 100th Premier League appearance with a stunning strike from 20 yards.
“We’ve given the fans something to remember,” the midfielder said. “The first half had some of the best performances we’ve played this season. Every time we went forward and got into the final third we looked dangerous.
"It was one of those where if I hit it another 100 times it wouldn’t go in. I hit it sweetly and it hit the top corner"
“We could have been six or seven up. We were happy with the four and we maybe dropped off a little bit in the second half, but we’re pleased with the first half and I’m happy with my goal.
“Gabriel set it to me and it was one of those where if I hit it another 100 times it wouldn’t go in. I hit it sweetly and it hit the top corner.”
Another positive of a dominant first-half display was Theo Walcott’s 32-minute hat-trick, and Wilshere was impressed with his team-mate’s performance.
“Theo looked sharp from the first minute and he gives us something different,” he said. “He likes to run in behind, the timing of his runs are perfect and even if they’re not he has the pace to make it up. He was deadly in front of goal too.”
