thumbnail Hello,

The 22-year-old issued a stinging response to a Blues fan who had sought to ridicule Arsenal's League Cup loss in 2011 by posting a picture of the England man in tears at Wembley.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere hit back at a Birmingham fan who taunted him over the Gunners' League Cup heartbreak against the Blues exactly three years ago.

The England international was part of the side that suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at Wembley back in 2011, as goals from Nikola Zigic and Obafemi Martins sealed a huge cup upset.

The result had consequences for both sides, with Arsenal's Premier League title bid stumbling afterward and Birmingham winning just two of its next 12 league matches and being relegated to the Championship.

On the anniversary of the defeat, one cheeky Blues fan took to Twitter to send Wilshere a picture of both the England midfielder and his teammate, Wojciech Szczesny, looking despondent after the final whistle, asking: “Recovered yet?”

But he got a response he was not expecting when Wilshere retweeted his remark alongside a stinging reply: “Yes mate just about! Have Birmingham?!?”

The St Andrew's outfit has not come close to returning to English football's top-flight since its 2011 relegation and currently sits in 16th place in the Championship – 14 points shy of the promotion spots.

Arsenal, meanwhile, is in the thick of a title fight at the top of the Premier League table, and will take on Bayern Munich in the second leg of a Champions League last 16 clash in two weeks' time.
