Koscielny kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Bournemouth.

Koscielny has shown time and again why he's one of the top center backs in the Premier League, helping to cover for Gabriel's mistakes while confidently marking the opponent's best striker. He's worn the armband for consecutive matches—both clean sheets—and has even scored three goals this season for good measure. He'll face a stiff test on Valentine's Day against Jamie Vardy and the table-topping Foxes.

Koscielny took two shots (none on target) while keeping a clean sheet in Tuesday's scoreless draw with Southampton.

Koscielny was consistent as always. He would've liked to score after climbing the ladder and getting his full head on a ball, but Fraser Forster's size might have contributed to his decision to do more with the ball than necessary. The talented Frenchman is the team's first choice center back and has shown himself to be equally adept with either Gabriel or Per Mertesacker at his side.

Koscielny made four interceptions in Sunday's goalless draw with Stoke.

Although Arsenal was under pressure from the Potters for much of the game, Koscielny was vigilant at the back and played well aside from one bungled clearance. He generally only makes offensive contributions from set pieces, making him fairly reliant on clean sheets and peripheral defensive stats to make a fantasy impact. He will remain a low-end option next week versus Chelsea.

Koscielny scored a goal while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

Koscielny played the role of the hero on Saturday. The Frenchman was confident in the back after getting a much-needed break against Bournemouth and found the back of the net for the third time this season. While he doesn't often score, he's confident with his head and Arsenal's back line will afford him a number of clean sheets.

Koscielny (hip) is starting Saturday against Sunderland.

Koscielny came off in the first half last week against Norwich City due to the ailment, but he will slot right back into his regular starting spot alongside Per Mertesacker against a Sunderland side that has struggled to score for the most part this season.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Koscielny could be available for Saturday's match against Sunderland.

Koscielny left last weekend's match against Norwich due to the injury, and if he is forced to miss any additional time, or at least not start, Gabriel would line up alongside Per Mertesacker in the first XI.

Koscielny (hip) is set to return to action without missing any time, according to The Guardian.

The damage to Koscielny’s hip is not as serious as was first feared and he may even feature against Sunderland. He would be back in training during the week and barring any setback he should be in line to resume his starting role.
