(GSM) – Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has heaped praise on young midfielder Jack Wilshere for his display in the League Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur (4-1 after extra time).
The French coach described the England midfielder as “outstanding”.
“He was outstanding,” Wenger told the club’s official website. “I am a bit cautious with him because you do not want to get too quickly too early all the praise.
“In the first half I think he has shown a little bit of everything you want from a football player. He got some stick and he could take it, he didn’t respond.
“He played, tackled, won the ball and tactically his position on the pitch was always good. He had an outstanding first half. He is fearless.”
