Jack Wilshere admits there were times during his 14 months on the treatment table he did not want to even think about football, but now hopes Arsenal can "push on" after getting back to winning ways against QPR.

Wilshere last played a competitive first-team game for the Gunners in May 2011 and was forced to sit out the whole of last season because of niggling ankle and knee problems, which also dashed any hopes of featuring for England at Euro 2012 or representing Team GB at the London Olympics.

"There are some days when you came into the physio room and the lads were going out, you just do not want to be there because after 10 or 11 months it gets to you," Wilshere said. "I am happy to be back now, so hopefully we can push on."
