Arsenal handed massive boost from key star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have received a welcoming boost ahead of a tricky run of Christmas fixtures, with the news that Laurent Koscielny is set to make a return to the side far sooner than expected.

According to the Metro the center-back, who was ruled out for at least a month after sustaining a serious laceration to his knee during the 6-3 loss to Manchester City, could play some part in the Gunners' fixtures this month.

Koscielny's injury required ten stitches, and Arsene Wenger had initially feared that he could be without the Frenchman for a lengthy spell.

The clash against Chelsea this coming Monday is likely to be to soon to expect the 28-year-old to return, but he could well play a role against West Ham on Boxing Day, and then in the subsequent December matches that follow.

The former Lorient man has performed above expectations this season, and has played a key role in ensuring Arsenal's title tilt hasn't faltered before the January transfer window.
