Laurent Koscielny is approaching full fitness just as Arsenal need a replacement at center back for Rob Holding who has torn his ACL.
Koscielny has been training for a few weeks now but given his age and the severity of the injury he suffered, he has been eased back into the line-up. That patient approach will likely be changed now that Rob Holding, who has improved by leaps and bounds since Unai Emery took over at the club, has gone down with a long-term injury. The big question is whether Emery reverts to a two-man center back pairing or persists with three. If Koscielny isn't ready for a start, Stephan Lichsteiner may deputize for Holding. Dec 7 - 12:47 PM
