Koscielny's Injury Cost Us

Last night’s game against Leicester was a very disappointing affair, not only because we didn’t grab all three point, but because we really should have, and it was only because we were playing with an injured centre back that we did.

We had grabbed the lead 20 minutes into the game after Laurent Koscielny suffered a bad head injury, after a clash with Jeffrey Schlupp and the player returned to the game shortly afterwards. Then two minutes after taking the lead, Schlupp put in what can only be described as an average cross. Koscielny, clearly still shaken up by his knock, didn’t show any bravery in the air and Leonardo Ulloa climbed highest to put away a good header.

Koscielny was later substituted, but questions must be asked as to why he was allowed to continue, especially considering that Calum Chambers actually did a pretty good job at the back. Chambers won two aerials duels and would have been better than Koscielny in that position, who couldn’t even win one.

Hopefully, Arsene Wenger will not make errors like this again, because it cost us two points away from home and really could’ve been avoided.
