Arsenal fans have asked Jack Wilshere to beat Tottenham on Twitter with Spurs set to travel to the south coast to face Bournemouth on Saturday.
The 24-year-old is currently on a season-long loan deal at the Vitality Stadium and has become a pivotal part of Eddie Howe’s midfield.
The Spurs fixture will have added meaning for himself and supporters of the north London club with Wilshere considered one of Arsenal’s own and having controversial run ins with Tottenham in the past.
Now Gunners supporters have taken to social media before the fixture wishing Wilshere and his side the three points against their fierce rivals.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Wilshere was particularly outspoken about Spurs during Arsenal’s FA Cup parade in 2015, in which the midfielder chanted on the microphone an anti-Tottenham song.
The former young prospect will not be expecting a warm welcome from the away support on Saturday and he will be sure to raise his own game against the north London outfit.
However, Spurs are left the only unbeaten Premier League side after eight fixtures and they will also be looking to continue their run against Bournemouth in 11th place.
