Jack Wilshere

Jack Wilshere scored his first goal since May 2015 as Arsenal wrapped up their Europa League Group H campaign with a comfortable win over Bate Borisov.

The Gunners had already secured top spot in the penultimate round of matches and went ahead with an angled finish from defender Mathieu Debuchy.

Theo Walcott added Arsenal’s second when the forward finished from close-range after Danny Welbeck’s heavy touch.

Midfielder Wilshere then scored a fine goal after he cut on to his left foot inside the penalty area and arrowed the ball into the net.

Bate defender Denis Polyakov put Walcott’s low cross into his own net after half-time before striker Olivier Giround converted from the penalty spot following Nemanja Milunovic’s trip on Walcott.

Mohamed Elneny added a sixth with a curling effort after being set up by Wilshere.
