Arsenal boss Wenger happy to count on Koscielny

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with Laurent Koscielny for their draw at Manchester City.

Koscielny stepped in to cover for the absence of Thomas Vermaelen.

Wenger said: "He had 'flu yesterday, and we left him at home. But Laurent Koscielny had a great game and stepped in very well. We have three classy centre backs, and it is a very difficult choice. Koscielny, Mertesacker and Vermaelen - no matter who is left out can feel it is not right. But I will rotate them and take into consideration the strikers we will face."
