Laurent Koscielny has no issues with helping Arsenal's injury crisis by playing out of position at full-back.

The Gunners head to Aston Villa without any recognised full-backs after a spate of injuries.

"My mates tease me calling me the white Cafu," Koscielny told the Official Arsenal Magazine.

"It's a position I knew as I started as a professional in France at left full-back. At the time, I was playing with Guingamp in the second division and I was very young.

"Obviously, it is not my favourite position but I am happy to help the team and do my best there."
