Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere would love to emulate the achievements of role model England captain Steven Gerrard to be at the heartbeat of his team for both club and country.

The 21-year-old goes from strength to strength with every game as he looks to put a frustrating spell on the sidelines with ankle and knee injuries firmly behind him - crashing in a superb late winner against Swansea on Wednesday night to fire the Gunners into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Wilshere said. "He has been the heartbeat of Liverpool for years. He has also been the stand-out performer for England as well. He is a great role model for me. If I can get anywhere near as good as him and drive the team forward like he does, then I will be happy."
