Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere reveals that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is his "role model".

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has described Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as his "role model".

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger claimed that Wilshere was the 'complete player' on Wednesday following his winning goal in their FA Cup triumph over Swansea City.

However, the 21-year-old has been keen to stress that he is still learning his trade from players such as England skipper Gerrard.

"Steven is a great role model," Wilshere told reporters. "He has been the heartbeat of Liverpool for years. He is a great role model for me.

"If I can get anywhere near as good as him and drive the team forward like he does, then I will be happy."

Wilshere has scored two goals in 16 appearances for Arsenal this season after making his return from a serious ankle injury.
