Jack Wilshere wants Arsenal to end the season with six wins out of six – confirming their place in next season’s Champions League while preventing Manchester United from wrapping up the Premier League title at the Emirates Stadium, according to the
United travel to north London on April 28 and could seal first place if they beat Arsene Wenger’s side. But with the prospect of Champions League football to play for, Wilshere, who returned from injury in the Gunners’ 3-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday, hopes his team can take maximum points from their final half-dozen games – but he admits there as some difficult fixtures on the horizon.
“We’ve got Everton now, which is big, a really important one, and if we win then we’re in a good position. But even then we’re definitely not over the line – we’ve got some tough games coming up,” Wilshere said.
He added: “ Fulham away [on Saturday] will be tough, and then we’ve got Manchester United [on April 28] – we obviously don’t want them winning the league at Emirates, so we’ll be up for that.
“But I think we can get maximum points from our six games – we beat United here the season before last, so we know we’re capable of it.”
Ahead of welcoming Everton to the Emirates on Tuesday evening, Arsenal are third in the table, a point better off than both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, who sit immediately below, and four points clear of David Moyes’ Toffees.
