Jack Wilshere has hinted that his Arsenal future could depend on whether he gets more playing time.
Speaking after the Cologne game, Wilshere told reporters: “Of course I want to be playing. It’s difficult when you play every three weeks.
“It’s the same as every player. I’m still determined to win my place back, I’m working hard and we’ll see what the future holds — if I can get in or I can’t.”
Wilshere added: “We thought we were in control in the first half [against Cologne] — we felt like they wanted to sit back and then hurt us on the counter-attack.
“I felt we dealt with that well in the first half but then they came out in the second half, they were sharp, we were trying to push.
“A little lapse in concentration and they get the goal, and then it’s difficult from then.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal will recall a host of first-team regulars for Sunday’s trip to Burnley.
