Thomas Vermaelen hails Jack Wilshere as a "world-class midfielder" and believes that his impact on the Arsenal team will grow as the season progresses.

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has hailed teammate Jack Wilshere for his performance in their 2-0 home defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Belgian centre-back believes that Wilshere's display showed that he is "growing and growing".

"I think Jack did well," he told Arsenal's official website. "For him and for Abou [Diaby] it was not easy with 10 men, they had to run a lot. Jack did well and he worked hard.

"You can see that since he came back he is growing and growing. And I think at the moment he is at a good level.

"He is a world-class midfielder and he can only get better because he is young, coming back from more than a year out with injury. So I am very confident he will come back really strong."

Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League table.
