Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere had no problem with QPR's tackling during his winning comeback.

Wilshere had to deal with plenty of robust challenges from a hard-working QPR midfield of Samba Diakite and Esteban Granero, and the England international would not have it any other way.

"That's part of my game. If I ever lost that then I wouldn't be the player that I was before so it was important to come through that," he said.

"To be honest, when I first started training it did go through my head, but then from the first tackle I was fine.

"Even the boss said to me the other day that I have got to calm down a bit, so there is no problem there."
