RM) Samir Nasri
An odd choice by Wilshere considering the number of players he eventually left out of the team. However, in the year that the 23-year-old broke through, Nasri enjoyed his best season with us.
CM) Cesc Fabregas
Another former Gunner who’s name must be whispered around north London, Fabregas had a clear effect on Wilshere as skipper during his early years in the first team.
CM) Steven Gerrard
The Liverpool legend partnered Wilshere in England’s midfield in the run-up to the World Cup, but injuries and various other factors meant that they couldn’t line up alongside each other in Brazil.

LM) Santi Cazorla
Wilshere has definitely shaped a team in his image where possession is key and Cazorla fits perfectly in this XI. Positioned on the left by our academy graduate, Cazorla may have to roll back the years.
