Jack Wilshere had a moment to forget.

Jack Wilshere misses sitter for Bournemouth vs Watford

Published Add your comment

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn recently admitted that the Cherries could look to make Jack Wilshere’s loan move from Arsenal permanent, if manager Eddie Howe sees fit.

"Whether or not we will go beyond a season, I think everything is possible,” Mostyn said at Soccer Global Convention in Manchester. "But if there is a possibility and Eddie Howe decides that he's somebody he wants to keep it will be up to him."

But after seeing the midfielder’s miss against Watford, Howe won’t be pestering Arsene Wenger anytime soon.

Wilshere's miss

Wilshere had the chance to give Bournemouth the lead with 16 minutes remaining in what was a thrilling game. Bournemouth had led twice thanks to goals from Callum Wilson and Josh King but Troy Deeney and Isaac Success equalised.

Twitter reacts

Twitter was quick to mock Wilshere for his terrible miss.

Arsenal future

Wilshere is looking to revive his career after falling further down the pecking order at Arsenal with the summer arrival of Granit Xhaka.

The Swiss international has taken to the Premier League exceedingly well, scoring two cracking goals in consecutive games against Hull City and Nottingham Forest.

If Wilshere can’t even score from mere yards out, he stands little chance of regaining his place in Wenger’s plans.
