Coquelin warns Arsenal about “Tough” Reading

Francis Coquelin may now be the lynchpin of Arsenal brilliant recent run, but it seems strange to think that just a few months ago he was playing in the Championship with Carlton, therefore he is the only Gunner with first-hand experience against Reading this season.

The story behind Coquelin´s ROCKET rise at Arsenal

Frustration and fear are not two words that you would normally associate with a footballer doing well, but there is a good case for saying that they have been heavily connected with the way that Francis Coquelin has gone from being another failed Arsenal youngster who did not make the grade and fulfil his early promise, to one of the most important players in a Gunners side putting together some of the best performances and run of results that us fans have seen for some considerable time.

Arsenal plotting transfer of `new Rio Ferdinand´

Many Arsenal fans now think that the centre back position is finally in good shape at the club, with Arsene Wenger signing the versatile and talented Calum Chambers from Southampton last summer and then completing the January transfer of Gabriel from Villarreal.

Wenger takes NO credit for Arsenal star´s resurgence

I bet there were not many Arsenal fans who saw this coming. We might have wanted Arsene Wenger to give Francis Coquelin more of a chance in previous seasons, especially as the team´s need for a defensive midfielder was often glaringly obvious and caused us to fall short of our targets.

Along with the way that the Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez came to Arsenal and had an instant impact, showing none of the time needed to adjust to the Premier League that we have seen so often, the way that Francis Coquelin has grabbed his chance to impress in the first team has been one of the big stories of the season so far for Arsenal.

Wenger explains why Coquelin IS the answer for Arsenal

The name of Francis Coquelin has been on the lips of many an Arsenal fan in recent weeks, especially since his disciplined and destructive performance at the heart of the Gunners midfield helped to produce our first big away win in a long time.

Is Coquelin set to be Arsenal’s new DM?

Francis Coquelin had never really broken into Arsenal’s first team squad on a regular basis and it looked like he was finished at the Emirates when Wenger sent him off to Charlton on loan, but he played well at the Valley and when Aaron Ramsey got injured Wenger did the sensible thing and recalled Coquelin back to the fold.

Arsenal to recall Coquelin to solve midfield problems?

It is bad enough that Arsenal continue to pick up injuries more often than Cristiano Ronaldo picks up a mirror, but we also seem to get a spate of players in the same area ruled out at the same time. Like having to face Borussia Dortmund without our two best keepers Szczesny and Ospina. Or losing the right back Debuchy and centre back Laurent Koscielny for the last few weeks.
