Laurent Koscielny says that the 1-1 draw at PSG tonight is a good point, but says Arsenal must work on their concentration.
The Gunners fell behind after just 42 seconds, Edinson Cavani remembering for that brief moment how to play football and nodding the home side in front. It could have been much worse as he went on to miss a host of easy chances, and Arsenal could have been more severely punished.
The French international was pleased after Alexis Sanchez’s goal rescued a point but says the team can’t keep going to sleep.
Speaking after the game, he said, “I think it’s a good point but we came here with our ambition and we wanted to have the three points, but when we start like this it’s difficult to play.
“Maybe in the final third we didn’t find the good ball to score, but we came back. During the game against Southampton in the Premier League we slept and we need to change this in the future.
“We need to be strong from the first minute to the end. During the game we played pretty well but if you start like this it’s difficult.”
It is a welcome point but the balance of the Arsenal team seemed all wrong, especially in the first half. It’s definitely something the manager has to address because we won’t keep getting away with defensive performances like that.
