Arsenal lost their Premier League against Liverpool at the Emirates, the defeat was attributed to the Gunners poor defending.
We had Calum Chambers and new boy Rob Holding at the heart of defense and we conceded four goals with reckless abandon.
However, Lauren Koscielny featured last weekend against the Premier League Champions Leicester City. Although, we couldn’t win the match but we kept clean sheet and Koscielny was the difference in defense with his stellar performance.
Wenger has been talking up the quality of vice captain, claiming that he saved us the point.
“We look a different team straight away and he gave us stability against a team that attacks very well,” Wenger said to the press after the match.
I think he was very important.
“I saw that we were a bit too young [in defence] and I have no real solution at central defence at the moment. In fairness he had a big back problem yesterday when he came out of the training.
“We came with 19 players and this morning we decided that he could play and I think it saved us this point.”
The fact that we didn’t concede a goal does not mean we do not need a centre back. Rob Holding did very well in the game but we cannot trust him for the season.
