‘Defence Much More Composed’: Arsenal Fans Ecstatic With Defender Returning From Injury


Laurent Koscielny returned from injury this weekend and immediately made an impact, as he kept Saido Berahino quiet and helped Arsenal secure a vital three points with a 1-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion.

The Gunners came into this game on the back of two straight league defeats, against Swansea and Manchester United, which meant a positive performance was a necessity. Whilst Danny Welbeck did the business at the other end scoring the only goal of the game, Koscielny was a rock in the heart of the defence alongside Per Mertesaker- recreating the defensive partnership that kept the most clean-sheets in the league last season.

With Koscienly returning, Arsenal can look ahead to their next seven games in December with a much more positive outlook as this could spell the end of their defensive crisis.
