Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says that his side are in for an "interesting game" against Everton this weekend.

Jack Wilshere has said that he is expecting a tough match when Arsenal face Everton in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Gunners suffered a 3-0 defeat in last season's match at Goodison Park, and Wilshere has said that he is desperate to get a positive result.

"Everton did fantastically last season," he told Arsenal's official website. "They work so hard under Roberto Martinez and he's a great manager. He wants to bring new ideas to the game and he's played some young players, like Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku. They're a good team and will be a strong force again this season.

"You saw in the games last season that it was always tight. We drew 1-1 at home and then beat them in the FA Cup. They beat us away and that was a bad day for us but we want to go there this season and show the fans what we can do.

"It's a tough place to go - there's no denying that. They're always up for the game and play great football as well. It will be an interesting game."

Arsenal began their season with a 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace last weekend.
