Jack Wilshere has set out his aim to win a trophy with West Ham United, as reported by The Daily Mail.
The 27-year-old got his first goal for the Hammers on Tuesday night, helping his side on the way to a 2-0 win against League Two side Newport County.
Speaking after the victory against Newport, he said: “It’s been a long time since this club won a trophy and it’s a shame because we’ve got such a big fan base, I know they’d love a trophy and so would we.”
It has been confirmed that West Ham will play Oxford United in the third round of the competition.
Wilshere won two FA Cups and one Community Shield while he was at Arsenal, as per Transfermarkt, playing a part in each of those victories, with the biggest being an assist in the Gunners’ 3-0 Community Shield win over Manchester City.
The England international struggled with injuries last season, managing just four league starts and four substitute appearances, as per WhoScored.
However, there is now hope that he will be able to kick on and play a more prominent role in claret and blue, as he has started three of their four games so far in the 2019/20 campaign.
West Ham have a talented team with the likes of Wilshere, Sebastian Haller, Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini, who should be looking to go as deep into the cup competitions as possible, potentially even eyeing the club’s first major trophy since the 1979/80 season.
Having Wilshere fit and available for the entirety of the campaign will certainly help to make this possible while balancing league form.
