The midfielder likes the tune the Gunners faithful have taken up.
Jack Wilshere scored the midfielder’s first Premier League goal for three years as Arsenal came from behind to draw 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League.
It was a great response from the 21-year-old after a difficult week that saw the England international photographed smoking outside of a nightclub.

Manager Arsene Wenger did not hold back when the Frenchman learned of the incident and slammed Wilshere for being stupid.
“I disagree completely with that behaviour,” Wenger was quoted by the Guardian.
“There are two things – first of all when you are a football player you are an example and as well you don’t do what damages your health.”
Of course football fans are not ones to shy away from a controversial issue and quickly came up with a song for the disgraced player.
Renditions of ‘He smokes when he wants’ were sung out for Wilshere’s benefit throughout the clash at the Hawthorns and the Englishman responded surprisingly well to the chant on Twitter after the match.
Love the new song for me today! Haha fans were incredible again! Good point nice to get a goal hopefully a few more to come! #Gooners

Even Wenger had cooled on the 63-year-old’s hammering of the midfielder, smiling when asked about the youngster’s week.
“Jack’s an honest guy. When he’s wrong he knows it,” the boss was quoted by the Mirror.
Although it wasn’t the best performance from Wilshere against West Brom, the starlet took his goal well and looks ready for a promising season ahead.
