Arsenal’s star midfield sensation Jack Wilshere is convinced that the Gunners’ juggernaut will bounce back in style this weekend against Crystal Palace after suffering a disappointing defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League game in midweek.
Arsenal failed to fire at home against last season’s Champions League runners-up, but did create enough chances to win the game before a late goal from super striker Robert Lewandowski turned the tide in Dortmund’s favour.
Wilshere though is convinced that this is not the end of the road for the Gunners, whose Champions League hopes have suffered a major dent, but still remain top dogs in the Barclays Premier League, leading the points table 8 games into the season.
A determined Wilshere shared in an interview carried in the Metro, ‘It is never nice to lose at home but it is not the end of the world. We can’t let this result affect us now, especially in the Premier League where we are on a great run. It will be tough away at Palace, it always is, they will fight for every ball and it will be a different game from Dortmund, but we still have to bounce back straight away.’
Arsenal are expected to pick up maximum points this week at Crystal Palace, who come into this game having just parted company with Manager Ian Holloway, and Wilshere will be desperate to ensure his side do not slip up against one of the League’s relegation favourites.
