Wilshere not too downbeat despite Arsenal defeat

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes the Gunners should not be too disheartened despite losing to Premier League champions Manchester United on Sunday, Sky Sports has reported.

A Robin van Persie goal was enough to give United the points at Old Trafford and reduce Arsenal’s lead over David Moyes’ team to five points, with second-place Liverpool now only two points behind the league leaders. But Wilshere feels there was enough positives in the performance – and the past week as a whole – for Arsenal to take comfort.

It’s frustrating but we always seem to come here and dominate at times,” Wilshere said. “At the end we had some good chances but it’s frustrating we didn’t get a result.

We are still top of the league and we have to go away from here, clear our heads and prepare for a god game at home against Southampton and hopefully we can push on from there,” the England international added.

We had a good week overall,” Wilshere continued. “We beat Liverpool and Dortmund away and there are not many teams can do that. It’s a tough ask to come here and win, they are a strong team, so we have to look back at the week and take the positives.

Wilshere played only little over 30 minutes of the game after entering in the second-half as a replacement for Mathieu Flamini. Former Arsenal forward van Persie had already put United in front by that point, converting Wayne Rooney’s 27th minute corner for the only goal of the game.
