CB: Laurent Koscielny

Football News

Arsenal were under the cosh for long spells of Sunday's 1-0 win over bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, which provided the perfect platform for defensive pairing Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny to prove their worth.

Koscielny in particular was outstanding in all-action defensive display, successfully completing 100% of his 15 clearances alongside three tackles, two interceptions and two blocked shots.

One of those blocks in particular was absolutely vital, shutting down Nacer Chadli from point-blank range as Arsenal dug deep to keep their title charge well and truly alive.
