Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere: 'Troy Deeney's comments not justified'

Silva did not take the comments well and believes that Deeney should rather focus on his own side.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will get his chance in the Premier League, manager Arsene Wenger said.

"I spoke to him about everything. We have a game tomorrow and another big game at the weekend and we have seen with this team that the players can bounce back quick - and we will do that", he explained.

"When we look back at the game, we look back at ourselves and what we did wrong". People try and put us down, they always have.

"That moment, Troy gave his opinion but it is finished now".

"There's a reason they lost and it was not because of one penalty", he said on Saturday.

Arsenal playmaker Jack Wilshere is so gifted when it comes to picking out a team-mate that "mere mortals can only dream of" of having his ability, according to Martin Keown.

The 25-year-old is back at the Emirates Stadium this term following a mixed spell out on loan with Bournemouth last season and has made five first-team appearances so far this campaign as he searches for full fitness.


"He's entitled to his opinion but you can't question our character".

But Wenger begged to differ, telling journalists at a press conference yesterday to preview today's Europa League clash against Red Star Belgrade that Deeney's comments "aren't justified".

"In the end we got the victor because I think they defended very well with a lot of determination".

"We did certain things wrong but we certainly didn't want to let the lead slip".

"I love my players and I trust their strength of character to respond quickly".

"I know who my players are", the Frenchman said.

"In the [previous] seven games we had six wins and one draw".
