Jack Wilshere has picked out the reasons behind Arsenal’s failure to win the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners, who topped the league at the beginning of January, were heavy favourites to be crowned champions this season and end a 12-year title drought following the struggles of rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.
However, a terrible run of form which included defeats away at Old Trafford and against Swansea City at home has seen Leicester City sail towards a historic title triumph.
According to Jack Wilshere who played no part in Arsenal’s title challenge due to injury, the team’s form at the Emirates stadium against lower opposition is what has cost them dearly.
“I think of the games that didn’t go our way like Swansea at home.” the England international said
“We used to struggle against the big teams, but this year we were alright. In games [like the Swansea one] we start quickly in the first 20 minutes and have chances but we need to make them count.
“There are a lot of chances we create with the likes of Özil, Alexis, and Welbeck, we just have to be a bit more clinical.”
