Jack Wilshere has insisted that he's ready to fight for his place in the Arsenal side after he was left out of the Gunners's side to play Napoli last night, reports the London Evening Standard

The England international came off the bench last night as the north London outfit cruised to their second straight Champions League victory.

And Wilshere believes the current Arsenal midfield shares similarities to the one at the Emirates from a few years ago. 

After the Gunners' game last night, Wilshere said: “When I broke into the team, the situation was similar. There were players like Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song and Abou Diaby at the club but this will bring out the best in me and it will bring the best out of the other players as well.

“We still have Santi Cazorla to come back from injury and if we can keep everyone fit, we are going to be real contenders in all four competitions."

Wilshere has insisted that he's excited and not concerned by the competition for places at the Emirates and said that he understood why he was left out of the starting XI last night. 

The midfield maestro continued by saying: “We have not really had this competition for places over the last few years, so we are all excited and we just have to keep it up now. Why was I on the bench? It was just a formation thing because I am feeling fine.

"Tomas Rosicky is coming back from injury and needed a game. I have played a lot of games recently so I was just happy to get on and help at the end.”

Wilshere will be hoping to regain his place in the side this weekend as Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom in the Premier League.
