Jack Wilshere made his debut as a second-half substitute for Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon – and fans took to Twitter to praise his display.
Wilshere, 24, joined Eddie Howe’s side this summer after agreeing a one-year loan move to the south coast.
The England international took to the pitch with half an hour to play against West Brom and helped guide the Cherries to a 1-0 victory at the Vitality Stadium.
Arsenal supporters praised the quality of their on-loan talisman and were impressed at how quickly he changed the game for his new side.
Here are a collection of their messages on Twitter:

Wilshere was once thought of as one of the most talented young midfielders in football, but has seen his chances limited at Arsenal in recent years.
The signings of Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil have dropped Wilshere down the Gunners midfield pecking order, but the creative star has already set-about reviving his career under his new manager.
Premier League rulings now state that Wilshere will not be able to be recalled from his loan agreement outside of a transfer window.
The academy starlet played just three games for Arsenal last season after being sidelined with another long-term injury.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping the England international can enjoy an unhampered season this term and return to the Emirates an improved player.
