Wilshere to make charity donation if Spurs finish above Arsenal


 Jack Wilshere is so confident that Arsenal will finish above Tottenham in this season's English Premier League that he has made a bet with rival fans.

The Arsenal midfielder says he will donate £3,000 to charity if the Gunners finish lower than Tottenham.

Third-place Tottenham lead Arsenal by three points. 19-year-old Wilshere was only 3 the last time Tottenham trumped its north London rivals.

Writing on Twitter, Wilshere says he expects Tottenham fans to reciprocate if Arsenal comes out on top.

Wilshere says "Send me a pound each and I will give it to charity."

Wilshere proposes giving to the Jack Marshall Brain Tumour Fund — a charity supporting children with cancer.
