Arsene Wenger: 'Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are in competition'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals that Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey share a competitive rivalry.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey's competitive rivalry can only serve to help the club.

Wilshere scored twice as the Gunners beat Marseille 2-0 on Tuesday, and Wenger feels that the England international and his Welsh teammate are in competition with each other this season.

"[Wilshere's] starting to think 'what Ramsey can do I can do as well', he's calm in front of goal and the first goal shows that," Wenger told reporters.

"It's a joke about Aaron but it puts in his mind that he has to score goals as well. Certainly, when you're a midfielder you want to score goals.

"No [I don't think Wilshere will be a goalscorer] but I have nothing against it. If I'm wrong then I'm happy."

A point for the Gunners in their next Champions League game away to Napoli will see them secure qualification.
