Unai Emery, the Arsenal boss knows that he needs to create in order to be defensive when it comes to solutions Southampton trip in Premier League. He plans on addressing the center-back storage that the team is facing as Arsenal is all set to travel to Southampton.
Captain Laurent Koscielny has made the first appearance of this season with a 1-0 win on Thursday against Qarabag in Europa League. The thirty-three old suffered his ankle in the month of May which ruled him out of the reveling World Cup campaign of France. Koscielny was able to complete seventy-two minutes playing with Sokratis Papastathopoulos. However, the luxury of getting 2 specialists at the center of defense isn’t one that Emery goes to enjoy at the Saint Mary’s.
Sokratis has suspended after he had collected 5th booking in about ten Premier League appearances against Huddersfield Town as Shkodran Mustafi recovers from the hamstring strain and the end of Rob Holding because of his knee ligament surgery.
It is risky to ask Koscielny to dive into action to make the injury more acute along with fullbacks from Nacho Monreal and Stephan Lichtsteiner and along with the midfielder Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka among the other options for the center of defense.
Sevilla and former Paris Saint-Germain boss, Emery said about the performance of Qarabag commenting that the performance of all the defense players have been pretty good with Koscielny and also Sokratis.
