Arsenal fans here in the Tavern are liking what they’re seeing from a few of their star men in recent games, as the Gunners look to push for an all-important Champions League spot.
Arsene Wenger’s side have been a mixed bag this season as they look to be heading for Europa League action for the second successive season, much to the dismay of fans calling for the Frenchman’s head. But, after seeing two of their January signings contribute towards a goal and assists in the Gunners’ last outing, the future looks very bright for the masses of fans turning out to the Emirates Stadium.
However, one man in particular has been catching all the plaudits in recent times, as the Gunners’ No.10 has made himself a contender for the Player of the Year award. Indeed, Jack Wilshere’s long-term injuries have quickly been put to one side as he continues to establish himself as one of the standout players this season, with even a seat on the plane to Russia looking likely for the England international.
Although, a Player of the Year triumph won’t be the only award heading his way this season, after Arsenal’s Twitter account took to notifying fans of Jack Wilshere winning the Gunners’ Goal of the Month poll.

Following the club’s post, fans were quick to congratulate Wilshere on the award he managed to secure with his goal against Chelsea, although they were keen to stress that a new contract should be gifted to the 26-year-old.
Nevertheless, here’s a look at exactly the sort of reaction being given off on social media…

Don’t think he’s gonna sign if he’s not getting first team football, and why would he? I WANT him to stay 100% but position competition is fierce as hell at the moment. He’s a class player!
