Jack Wilshere: 'Arsenal must improve without the ball'

Jack Wilshere believes that Arsenal must continue to improve the way they play without the ball.

Jack Wilshere has claimed that Arsenal must improve how they respond to not having the ball in matches.

The Gunners recovered from a Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich by thrashing Sunderland 4-1 on Saturday and Wilshere believes that their pressing against the Black Cats should be a common theme in future performances.

"Against Bayern, we were on top for the first 20 minutes and had a great chance to score but didn't, so we wanted to continue that (against Sunderland), stay high and win the ball back," Wilshere told reporters.

"Once we won the ball back in their half, we always looked dangerous.

"We have some big games coming up, we (need to) continue with the same work ethic off the ball, try to win it back straight away and press them."

Arsenal take on Stoke City in their next fixture on Saturday.
