Arsenal

Koscielny faces race against time

1st March 2019, 09:14 by Alex Jack

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is hoping Laurent Koscielny will recover in time for Saturday's north London clash with Tottenham.

The former France international suffered a knock late on in the midweek victory over Bournemouth and now there are some doubts about whether he will be fit for the short trip to Wembley.

In more positive news, Ainsley Maitland-Niles is available after illness, while Stephan Lichtsteiner looks to have recovered from a back problem and should be able to feature against Spurs.

With his side having the chance to move within a point of Spurs in the Premier League table, Emery says he and his players are looking forward to the challenge ahead.

"It is a big motivation. We need to take the opportunity...it's one team that, at the moment, are better than us in the table," the manager told reporters.

"I think it is very difficult there, to win, but it is a good test, a great test and a positive test."
