West Ham United find themselves at the foot of the Premier League table having failed to secure a single point in their opening four games.
The Hammers conceded a last-minute goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday as they now head into the international break without a point on the board. And, to make matters worse, one of West Ham United’s first team members is struggling to earn international recognition, as according to the Telegraph, Gareth Southgate has stated that Jack Wilshere is not up to England level.
Jack Wilshere moved to the London Stadium to resurrect his career at the club and international level, but his performances just haven’t been up to scratch so far this season.
And, England manager Gareth Southgate made it clear that, as politely as possible, that so far Wilshere has not reached the required standard.
“I’ve watched two of his first three games, so the same as every other player. They’ve got to be playing well and the competition is high.”
Jack Wilshere lost the ball at times against Wolverhampton Wanderers and struggled to have a positive impact throughout the match, so it comes as no surprise that Gareth Southgate isn’t impressed with what he has witnessed so far this season from the midfielder.
The Hammers find themselves in a spot of bother and the Englishman is the perfect man to get them out of trouble, but he just hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far.
