FANS REACTION: Laurent Koscielny is back | Arsenal vs Huddersfield Town

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny is back in the squad for the first time this season as Unai Emery names him on the bench for the team that face Huddersfield today.

The 33-year-old suffered an Achilles injury that kept him out for seven months and fans were given hopes when he recently played twice for the club’s U-23 team.

The Frenchmen wasn’t expected to make it tonight. However Unai Emery sprung a surprise by naming the Koscielny on the bench with Nacho Monreal also making his return and it has just brought a BIG SMILE on everyone’s face.

Despite being 20 games unbeaten now and Gunning for the 21st against Huddersfield, Arsenal have had some problems on the back. Yes, they were playing without their ‘skipper Kos’ until now and his return might just bring a huge boost to Arsenal’s defence.

Emery indicated Koscielny could return against Huddersfiled, though confirming his involvement in mid-weeks Europa League clash against Qarabag.

“We are on a gradual way with him,” Emery said in his pre-match press conference.

“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. 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.

Emery went on to describe How influential can Laurent Koscielny turn out to be for the Gunners.

“He gives us experience, quality, personality,” he added.

“We need every player and we need also for him to train with us. The next step is playing. He can play with us and be with us normally.”
