Wilshere has long been touted as an exceptional talent but has had a career absolutely ravaged by injuries.

His departure to Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth in August came as a surprise and Wilshere has now explained why he had to take the decision.

‘Sometimes when you are at a top club and you have been at a top club for your whole career and you are playing week-in week-out it is easy to get in that comfort zone,’ said Wilshere.

‘For me to come down here and taste a different side of the Premier League, where you have to fight for everything, fight for every point and work as a team, it is definitely out of my comfort zone.

‘I haven’t played 90 minutes in two years. It’s a long time not to play 90 minutes and when you play game by game you start to get your confidence back and try more things.

‘I am working hard in training but you can’t get that match fitness unless you are playing games.’

Indeed the Cherries’ 0-0 draw with Tottenham on Saturday was, quite incredibly, Wilshere’s first completed 90 minutes in the league since September 2014.

Wilshere and Bournemouth are now unbeaten in four league games and next travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday.
