Arsenal duo Shkodran Mustafi and Jack Wilshere were two of the stand-out performers in Thursday night's 3-2 win away at Crystal Palace.

Alexis Sanchez scored a brilliant second-half brace but Wilshere, 25, was pulling the strings in the heart of the Gunners midfield.

The injury prone England international has recently established himself in Arsene Wenger's first team and the French coach had a message for him in his post-match interview.

“The situation is that we need to sit down with him,” Wenger explained after Wilshere’s impressive performance in the 3-2 win at Selhurst Park.

“In the beginning of January, it’s planned, there is no delay. I said that we would sort out his situation at the end of December, and so I told him that we want to meet and sit down with him to talk about the future. That’s what I did.

“Now we play today, we play on Sunday, we play on Wednesday. At the moment the focus has to be on the games.

“The best way to show they are committed is to give that kind of performance. Jack is coming back in competitive shape. He gives something to the team at the moment, and gave a good final ball for the third goal.”

Wilshere and Mustafi's post match-interview

The Arsenal academy graduate was awarded the Man of the Match award and fans watching Sky Sports watched Wilshere and Mustafi join Geoff Shreeves for a post-match interview.

At one point, Shreeves asked Wilshere if he is "back to his best" and the German defender couldn't help but chime in with a cheeky response.

Arsenal fans absolutely loved it on social media.

Arsenal visit West Brom on Sunday before welcoming Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

Just one point separates the Gunners, Tottenham and Liverpool in the race for fourth.

Sanchez could leave the club as a free agent at the end of the season and there are rumours that Arsenal could cash in on the 29-year-old in January.


"I am not fearful," Wenger told Sky Sports after the 3-2 win. "But as you said, that will be a subject that arises because of his contractual situation.

"I can only repeat what I've said until now and I've said it many times, so I won't repeat."
