Unai Emery has provided an update on Laurent Koscielny after the Frenchman picked up a knee injury on Wednesday night (via Arsenal.com).
It was close to a perfect match for Unai Emery and Arsenal against AFC Bournemouth after that 5-1 win.
The Gunners were at their flowing, attacking best moving forward and defended solidly throughout.
There was some cause for concern when club captain Laurent Koscielny went down late on clutching his knee.
The Frenchman lucked in real pain after the collision but saw out the match and now, head coach Unai Emery has provided an update on the player.

“I hope all it is, is one kick,” Emery said last night.
“We have three days between today and Saturday and I hope he can be okay.”
Hopefully, Laurent Koscielny’s injury isn’t too bad. The Frenchman will need to be back on top form on Saturday if the Gunners are to come out on top in the North London Derby. Unai Emery also confirmed that Granit Xhaka is fully fit and that Sead Kolasinac’s substitution was just precautionary.
