The two players to praise for Arsenal’s resurgence



Laurent Koscielny

The start of the season made projected the North London outfit Arsenal as a weak side defensively as they conceded the highest number of goals amongst the top six teams.

All of these seem to have changed rapidly as the Gunners team have been transformed to recording six clean sheets in the last seven games across all competi0tons.

Former Man United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has attributed the resurgence to the perfect partnership between Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papa.

With this feat, the North London outfit have now stepped up in their race for a top-four finish while they have been able to see past Italian Serie A outfit Napoli for a semi-final clash against Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia in May.

The former Red Devils player noted that the Gunners have always looked different with Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papa at the defence while the mix of Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka has paid the Spanish boss.

He stressed that manager Unai Emery has to be given the credit because he has been able to set up the team correctly while noting that the team is now in their peak at the right time to help them with a Champions League qualification and the Europa League title win.
