The gunners are on an unbeaten run of 19 games but most Arsenal fans are afraid that their fine run might end this month because there are a lot of matches to be played in December. Arsenal boss Unai Emery will keep rotating his squad so that he can avoid fatigue in his squad but the return of key stars from injuries will help the gunners.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has confirmed that his main captain Laurent Koscielny will be returning to the pitch next week when the gunners face Qarabag who will come into this game well knowing that the gunners will field youngsters. Laurent Koscielny has been on the sidelines for months now but he has finally returned after passing through a lot of rehabilitation.
Laurent Koscielny is yet to make an appearance for the gunners this season aside from the two matches he played for the Arsenal Under-21 and Under-23. Unai Emery had a press conference on Thursday and he was asked if Laurent Koscielny would return for their weekend match against Huddersfield Town. He however said that the Arsenal captain might play against Qarabag.
“We are on a gradual way with him. He’s played two matches with the under-23s. He played 85 minutes on Tuesday and our plan is that he can maybe be with us in the 18 on Saturday. Maybe he can play against Qarabag in the Europa League.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“He’s working with us with very big performances every day in training. He’s playing for the under-23s with a good feeling. The next step is for him to be with us.”
