The 25-year-old impressed as he made his first Gunners start in 493 days - and went the distance for the first time in almost three years - after spending the last two campaigns injured and out on loan with Bournemouth.
"It was very good to have him back out there," Wenger told reporters last night after the game. "You can see that he's getting more comfortable with his position now. He's brave now and he trusts his body. That's the most important thing, that he's capable of playing 90 minutes.
"He will just grow with that and he was vocal as well, which was important for us, especially at the end. He kept the ball well in tight situations and to come out of that is vintage Jack. That's what we want to see from him in the future here at Arsenal."
Asked if Wilshere was a part of his long-term plans at Arsenal, Wenger told reporters this morning: "That is down to the fact that he can remain fit or not. I think he's an Arsenal man and an Arsenal player and he would certainly want to.
"I don't know. We haven't spoken about that because we thought at the start of the season how it evolves and what kind of influence he can have in the squad for the whole season."
Reports in recent days have suggested that Wilshere could be a target for West Ham United when the winter transfer opens in January.
