Koscielny fitness boost ahead of North London derby


At his press conference on Friday Arsene Wenger said that Laurent Koscielny’s chances of playing against Sp*rs on Sunday were 60-40.

Well, it looks a bit more promising than that as the French international took part in training today ahead of tomorrow’s crunch clash at White Hart Lane.

The 31 year picked up a knee problem towards the end of Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Leicester, and was a doubt, but now appears to be well on track to feature in a game that Arsenal really need to win.

He was pictured in conversation with Arsene Wenger, and hopefully he’s come through whatever medical tests he was given.

The Arsenal manager said he could still play with three at the back if Koscielny didn’t make it, but obviously you’d fancy our chances for more if he was playing than not.

Lucas Perez is also in contention for a return to the squad as he steps up his return from a thigh injury.
