Jack Wilshere

Arsenal fans slam Arsene Wenger following Chelsea’s recall of Nathan Ake

Chelsea make Arsenal look stupid

Ever since Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-0 at The Emirates in September, the Blues have made the Gunners look a little silly.

It should have been Arsenal that kicked on from a fantastic win at home, to challenge for the Premier League title.

Instead, Antonio Conte refined his 3-4-3 tactics in the final half an hour of that match and since then Chelsea have not looked back.

Even after the defeat at Spurs, Chelsea remain five points clear at the top of the Premier League, whilst Arsenal trail their London rivals by eight points.

Chelsea recall Nathan Ake

On Sunday, Chelsea recalled Nathan Ake from his loan spell at Bournemouth.

Ake has impressed at the Cherries, alongside Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, and Chelsea used up their clause to recall the young Dutchman whenever they wanted.

So, as a result, Arsenal fans wondered whether the Gunners would also recall Jack Wilshere from Bournemouth.

Wenger: “It’s season-long loans in the Premier League”

Wilshere has been in fine form in recent weeks and Arsenal look short in midfield due to injuries sustained by Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin whilst Mohamed Elneny has joined up with Egypt at AFCON.

On Thursday, Arsene Wenger was asked whether he would recall Wilshere from Bournemouth to add strength in numbers to his midfield.

Wenger answered: “It’s season-long loans in the Premier League.”
