Cape Town - Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says Arsenal’s recent performances have been a “joy to watch”.

Arsene Wenger's side have risen to the top of the form table in the league. Following their win over Burnley on Saturday, the Gunners have won 16 of their last 18 matches.

Wilshere, who played for the under-21s on Tuesday night as he continued his rehabilitation from an ankle injury, believes the team has made huge strides.

“Not just over the last season, I think it’s over the last few years [that we have made progress],” he told Arsenal Player.

“We lost a lot of players from when I started in the first team, a lot of people said Arsenal would never come back but we didn’t listen to them.

“We kept going, added real quality, world-class players to the squad and the main thing here is the team ethic.

“You can see that we have a great atmosphere around, everyone wants to work for one another and we go into every game knowing we can create chances if we stay strong defensively.

“I remember when I got my first injury and it was the year when Cesc [Fabregas] left. We struggled that year at the start and it was tough to watch.

“It has been totally different this year - they have been playing great football and it has been a joy to watch.”
