Jack Wilshere: I'm happy with where I am
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has said that he’s happy with where he is after coming through 90 minutes against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday.
Having played the full match in Serbia a couple of weeks ago Wilshere managed to do the same on Thursday during the 0-0 draw despite a nervous moment when he went down holding his knee.
Speaking to BT Sport after the game he spoke of how he was happy with his situation at the moment.

"I feel good. I'm trying to get in the team but there are good players here. I'm happy with where I am. I'm enjoying my football and being back in an Arsenal shirt.
"We'll have to be better when we go to Manchester City. We'll go there full of confidence."
Red Star had a couple of chances to win the game, whilst Wilshere himself saw a chip cleared off the line, and after the game the Arsenal man said they would take a draw but they weren’t overly pleased.

"At the start of the tournament, we knew we had the quality to get out of the group. If you can't win the game, don't lose it. We're not delighted with a point but we'll take it.
"In the first half they were the better team. In the second half we were better. We'll learn from this. We want to win the group.
The result means that they qualify for the knock-out stages, remaining undefeated after four matches.
