Koscielny kept a clean sheet in Saturday's scoreless draw with Middlesbrough.

On a day where Arsenal's midfield looked a bit lackadaisical and the energy level just wasn't there, leave it to the team's acting skipper to keep the sheet clean. After playing a strong match throughout, his tackle on Adama Traore in the 88th minute was an inspiring piece of play to help lift his team to a draw. With a far more youthful squad expected mid-week against Reading, Koscielny will look for his fifth clean sheet of the season in Saturday's match against Sunderland.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny won five tackles and secured four interceptions during Wednesday's 6-0 victory over Ludogorets int he Champions League.

Koscielny and company sat back and watched their attacking teammates run rampant, intervening any time the opposition attempted to break the other way. He has been excellent this season and has seen the back line breached just six times in the 10 matches he has played. Koscielny should be one of the first names on the team sheet Saturday versus Middlesbrough.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny won two tackles and scored the winning goal on his only shot during Sunday's 1-0 victory over Burnley.

The Gunners seemed resigned to a goalless draw, but Koscielny made his way forward in stoppage time and was able to bungle the ball over the line after a short corner. Koscielny has been a key part of the back line this season, as they have allowed just five goals in his eight matches in all competitions, and he ranks among the top players at his position with a pair of goals from six league appearances. He will draw a matchup with Swansea on Oct. 15 after the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny made three interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet in Wednesday's 2-0 triumph over FC Basel.

Koscielny's match was rather uneventful, as the Gunners controlled possession and didn't face many attacks from the opposition. He has formed a solid partnership with Shkrodan Mustafi, and the duo has seen their goal breached just three times in five matches since the latter joined the club. They will look to continue their strong recent play Sunday versus Burnley.

The Gunners took the game to Chelsea in the first half, and Koscielny was integral to their defensive effort as they held on for to the clean sheet.

A Champions League fixture with FC Basel is next on the schedule this Wednesday.

Koscielny (eye) is in the starting XI for Tuesday's Champions League match with PSG

Koscielny will slot in at centre-back and pair with Shkodran Mustafi against a tough Paris Saint-Germain side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny suffered a eye injury in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Southampton, but should be able to play in Tuesday's Champions League match with Paris Saint-Germain, ESPN FC reports.

Koscielny suffered a blow to the eye in the closing moments of the Southampton match, but should be available Tuesday despite initial swelling to the eye area. Should Koscielny miss Tuesday's clash, Rob Holding would be the most likely candidate to replace him and partner with new signing, Shkodran Mustafi.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Southampton.

On his 31st birthday, Koscielny showed that centre-halves can get better with age. Not known as a goal scorer, the Frenchman measured out a beautiful overhead kick to equalize on 29 minutes. Defensively, he was as strong as ever, making key interventions and bringing a level of calm to the Premier League debutant Shkodran Mustafi and the rest of the Arsenal back line. He took a boot to the face at the crest of stoppage time, but was able to remain in the game. He'll be key in his return to the Parc des Princes against PSG in Arsenal's Champions League matchup with the French champions.
