'Devastated' West Ham haven't had time to gel, admits Jack Wilshere after Bournemouth defeat
Even more familiar opposition lie in wait for Wilshere, as they head to Arsenal next weekend.
But they must learn quickly from a poor second half at the London Stadium in which erratic defending and a lack of structure allowed Eddie Howe’s side to come from behind and take all three points.
With a new manager and nine summer arrivals, they could not have been further from the settled Cherries side, but Wilshere knows that must change.

“We have got a lot of new players and we need to gel,” Wilshere said.
“At this level in this league, people aren’t given time, so we have to do it quick and all tuck in this week.
“We started well and we all wanted to win this week and we felt we were good enough to win. Obviously, the dressing room is devastated because we should have come away with something from the game, but we have to go again."
Speaking to the club website, he added: “That’s the thing about this league, that you haven’t got much time to be down. You have to be back on the training pitch and go again.”
