Koscielny set to return in a 'matter of days'

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny hasn’t sustained knee ligament damage and will return ‘within days’, the Frenchman confirmed on his official Facebook page.

The 26-year-old had to be substituted during Wednesday night’s 4-0 Champions League defeat by AC Milan in the San Siro, after taking a knock on his knee.

Fellow Gunners defender Per Mertesacker is currently sidelined nursing an ankle ligament injury, leaving the shakey-looking Johan Djourou and Sebastien Squillaci as further defensive options.

Koscielny is set to miss Saturday’s FA Cup clash against Sunderland, with Swiss international Djourou likely to replace him in the centre of Arsenal’s defence.

Other than the consistently average players we have it is still possible to achieve, if you alter your tactics to suite the personnel that you have. Unfortunately Arsene doesn’t do that. His insistence on playing Luke Barca, even though he doesn’t have the players is our downfall. Against Milan they pushed forward as if they were at home, allowing Milan to hit us repeatedly on the break. Did they learn after a couple of goals? Did Arsene get off the bench to try to get the message across? NO!!!! They just kept playing like zombies to the kill. No clue.… Read more »
