He's returned decent points in approximately half of the full games he's played which is why he's done so well and has ended up in 1 in 4 teams But, as you can see, he's had periods without much joy too. One thing you can say about him though, is that thiswas not for want of trying - his statistical form remained good, he still got in shooting positions, created chances, things just didn't go his way.
We think this is an important thing to remember. Players do not score metronomically, they go on runs, they go on droughts. You have to take the rough with the smooth. Patience, and knowledge of a players underlying performances can be key.
As with Lallana, Wilshere's stats are consistent and respectable, and on a few occasions now he's produced the points. You could argue it took him a few weeks to get going but in his last 10 starts he's returned decent points on 4 occasions, a not too dissimilar rate to Lallana. So, is Jack worth a place in your team at £6.1m? On a pure value perspective, yes. Don't get us wrong, we'd rather have Lallana at the same price, but there's not much around at £6m these days and if you don't have Lallana already you're paying a lot just to keep up with those who do. Ongoing consistency of selection will be a key factor for Wilshere, especially with Ramsey's return in mind, but he could be a real alternative.
