Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs says assistant manager Steve Bould is very thorough with his preparations.

The former centre-back has been credited with the Gunners conceding just 16 goals in 16 outings so far this season and Gibbs was full of praise for the plans the 50-year old puts in place to assist the defenders.

"Steve has his own view of the game and goes through a lot of detail after matches," he said.

"He makes sure everyone understands their unique roles and we have worked on a number of things, including how to face attackers and moving up the pitch as a unit."
