Arsenal produced some scintillating performances in the second half of last season as they finished third in the Premier League.
Jack Wilshere missed a large portion of the season through injury but returned to action towards the back end of the campaign and scored a fine goal against West Brom.
His two goals for England against Slovenia were not bad either. As we head in to the new season, that kicks off next weekend, Wilshere has warned Arsenal's competitors, that they are more dangerous than ever.

As seen on the clubs official website, he said: "We worked a lot on the first five seconds when we lose the ball. If we can win the ball back in the opposition's half where, most of the time, when we win it we've got the players up front and the quality in midfield to find them… then we're always going to look dangerous.
""We didn't start the season well last year but the way we finished it… if we had played the whole season like that then we could have been champions. If we continue our form from the end of last season when we dominated games with our possession, and we won the ball back in better positions high up the pitch, then we've got a real chance."
Following the addition of Petr Cech from Chelsea along with other world class signings in recent years such as Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, Wilshere believes that Arsenal are now in a position to win the Premier League, and believes that is the aim for the club in the upcoming season.
Having broke into the Arsenal side during the 2010-11 season, a series of ankle injuries have limited the 23-year-old to just 63 league appearances in the last three campaigns.
However having returned from his latest injury set back in May, Wilshere showed signs he was returning to the level that took him to the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2011.
A stunning finish in the 4-1 win against West Brom and a fantastic brace for England was cause for many Arsenal fans to believe the academy graduate was well and truly back to his best.
The Gunners have a catalogue of players capable of occupying the central midfield positions, but if the Stevenage born midfielder can recreate the form of his breakthrough year then there is no reason he can not hold down a starting role in the Arsenal midfield this season, given he stays injury free.
Arsenal face Chelsea in the Community Shield final on Sunday. A game that could really allow the Gunners to lay down a marker to the defending Champions and all of their transfer rivals.
