An opening-day home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa is the only blot on the Gunners' copybook, having won all their other matches.
Most impressive is their away form, with last night's win in Marseille a club-record 10th in succession on the road.
"At the end of last season we knew we had to get that fourth position and I said at the start of the campaign we had to take that into this year," Wilshere said.
"We started off badly, losing at home, but we picked it up since.
"We won at Fulham away, which is not easy, and we have had some good away wins. The last 10 away games we have won but they have not been easy.
"Some games we had to hold out right until the end and in other games we have killed it off early.
"We are on a good run at the moment but we know we have got to keep that going."
