Arsenal v Everton - Premier League
Arsenal recently defeated Everton 5-1 in the Premier League.

Arsenal have been known to be inconsistent in their performances this season. Despite that, they have players who have impressed in almost every match that the Gunners have played. These players have set their minds, and seem to be fully focused on the campaign, and fully deserve to be recognised for their hard work this season.

They are the beacons of hope for the team and the rest of the players. Arsenal should be glad to have these players in the team, who have contributed a great amount this season.

If not for their efforts and commitment, Arsenal could well be an average team in the Premier League, and Arsenal will want to keep these players for as long as possible in order to perform well in the future.

On that note, here is a look at 5 Arsenal players who have really impressed this season:

#5 Jack Wilshere

Wilshere has been impressive thus far into the season. His career at Arsenal has been hampered by multiple long-term injuries, which greatly reduced his play time and potential. The Englishman made his debut for England when he was just 18, but in the last 8 years, he has made just 34 appearances as of February 2018.

He went on loan to Bournemouth last season but returned early after suffering an injury towards the end of the campaign. Thereafter, he worked his way back to fitness and into the team.

Arsene Wenger has a habit of playing youngsters and those who failed to make it into the starting lineup, in Europa League as well as cup fixtures. The Arsenal manager saw it as a way to let all of his players get game time even if they were not playing at the highest level in the EPL.

Wilshere worked diligently in the Europa League, made eye-catching appearances and illustrated how dangerous he can actually be. That led to a growth in confidence for him and also for the manager.


When Wilshere was finally fully fit and adapted to play consistently again, he started to make his way into the starting lineup in EPL fixtures. This season looks to be one of the most memorable seasons for Wilshere.

His undying attitude and perseverance have surely paid off, and it looks likely that he will be called up for England in the upcoming World Cup. Other than Wilshere, there is another equally invaluable midfielder for the team.
