Wilshere: There is ‘nothing like’ playing in front of West Ham fans

West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere says there is ‘nothing like’ playing in front of the club’s home support.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have been in impressive form at the London Stadium, having gone unbeaten in seven home games in all competitions, and Wilshere admits the club’s ‘amazing fan base’ have played their part.

“We spoke about the importance of our home form at the start of the season,” Wilshere told

“Things didn’t start too great with the results against Bournemouth and Wolves, but the manager was keen on us making this a place where we can’t wait to play football at every home game.

“We have a fantastic stadium and an amazing fan base, and when they’re cheering us on here, supporting us, there’s nothing like it in football. We fill this stadium every week and, as a footballer, we want to play in that environment all the time. We want to continue our good run against Everton now.”

Wilshere joined West Ham on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer, but he has managed only five Premier League appearances for the Hammers due to injury.
