Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere has sought to calm the anxious nerves currently at the Emirates Stadium, following their Matchday 3 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Gunners couldn’t replicate the form they showed at the weekend in the 4-1 win over Norwich City and the 21 year old English International believes his side needs to get back on track as soon as possible.
“It is never nice to lose at home, but it is not the end of the world,” said Wilshere, who was substituted in the second half as a precaution after aggravating his ankle.
“We can’t let this result affect us now, especially in the Premier League where we are on a great run”.
Arsenal face Crystal Palace in the EPL’s early kick-off game on Saturday and although the Gunners no.10 has acknowledged the difficulties that come with the visits to Selhurst park, he has also backed his team to respond from their latest setback in a positive manner.
“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.”
Palace meanwhile, will be hoping to begin life without Ian Holloway on a positive note, after the English man resigned as the London club’s manager earlier in the week and as we’ve often seen, the players’ give their all whenever there’s a change in the dug-out. Gunners fans would hope Wilshere and the rest of the Arsenal team are fully aware of this.
