Arsenal must bounce back, insists midfielder

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has insisted that his side must bounce back from their loss to Manchester City when they take on north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs sit third in the Premier League standing, four points above Wenger’s men who are sixth-placed. For the first time in 22 years, Tottenham finished above Arsenal last season. The two sides meet after the international break on Saturday November 18 and Wilshere concedes Tottenham has developed into a ‘great team’.

- They've come a long way in the last few years. They finished above us last year, and we want to finish above them this year. But it's not all about that, we don't just look at them. We want to finish as high as we can. We know it's going to be a tough game. It's at the Emirates, so we have to take the game to them, said Wilshere.

The England international returned to the Emirates this summer after spending last season on loan at Bournemouth. His contract runs out at the end of this campaign, and he has so far struggled to establish himself in Arsenal's first team since returning to the club.
