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

After last week's calamitous opener, Koscielny was rushed back a bit earlier than manager Arsene Wenger might have hoped, but provided the stability he knew he needed at the back. Koscielny's return paid huge dividends to the composure of battery mate Rob Holding, making his first away appearance in the Premier League match. Koscielny's late intervention on a Jamie Vardy counter was instrumental in keeping the Gunners' clean sheet.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny is in the starting XI for Saturday's match with Arsenal.

Koscielny will start at centre-back and appears to be fit after France's Euro 2016 campaign. He replaces Calum Chambers, who received the start in last Sunday's 4-3 loss to Liverpool.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny may be selected in the team for Saturday's match with Leicester City, despite not having played in a game since the European Championship this summer.

Koscielny may be risked for Saturday's match . Arsenal are currently in somewhat of an injury crisis, which forced Arsene Wenger into starting Rob Holding and Calum Chambers at centre-back during Sunday's 4-3 loss to Liverpool. Koscielny could offer Arsenal defensive stabilization after allowing four goals in their previous match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny returned to training on Wednesday after his extended holiday following the European Championship.

Koscielny's work toward fitness is of utmost importance for the Gunners, who will be without Per Mertesacker (knee) for a number of months and Gabriel (ankle) for up to six weeks. The season doesn't start easily either, as Arsenal will host Liverpool before traveling to face Leicester City on 20 Aug.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny will not play on Sunday against Liverpool, as he has yet to return to training following the European Championship, ESPN FC reports.

The end of Koscielny's extended break is now becoming more important, as Arsenal will be without Per Mertesacker (knee) and Gabriel (ankle) for the immediate future, leaving Rob Holding and Calum Chambers as the likely two starting centre backs to begin the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny started all seven matches for France during Euro 2016, tallying four shots off target, three clean sheets, seven tackles and two yellow cards on four fouls. He improves to 35 caps and one goal. France suffered an upset 1-0 extra-time loss to Portugal in the final capturing the silver medals.

Koscielny had an excellent campaign last season for Arsenal despite a few minor injuries. The 30-year-old center back had very solid fantasy upside, as well, as he had a knack to go forward, especially on set pieces. The veteran finished the season with four goals, 15 clean sheets and 47 tackles in 33 Premier League starts.

Koscielny secured two interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Thursday's 2-0 victory over Germany.

Koscielny and company faced a tough test Thursday, but they held on during some intense pressure during the first half and were able to grind out their biggest win of the tournament. The hosts have now allowed just four goals through six matches, and they will look to clamp down once again in Sunday's final versus Portugal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny won two tackles, made three interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Sunday's goalless draw with Switzerland.

Koscielny played extremely well positionally and was in place to make several key interventions, helping France wrap up the top spot in Group A. He has been a large factor defensively as the hosts have allowed just one goal through three matches, and will look to keep it tight at the back as the knockout phase begins next Sunday versus the third-place finisher from Group C, D or E.
