Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger doesn't believe Manchester City deliberately targeted Jack Wilshere.

City captain Vincent Kompany was sent off in an incident involving Wilshere during Arsenal's defeat.

Asked if City targeted the midfielder, Wenger replied: "I hope not. I didn't get that sense in the game. He has a game that provokes tackles: he's incisive, he goes forward. But you could see he has found a burst when he's on the ball that is very interesting. It would have been interesting if it had stayed at 11 against 11."
