“I feel 100 per cent, it took me a while to get back to full fitness but I feel good now,” Coquelin added.

“When you make this kind of tackle, it happened before against West Brom, I was a bit scared in the first place.

“But the good thing was when I had done it I could run back on to the pitch, even if I did not stay on for long.

“The scan was positive so it’s all great.”
