Francis Coquelin says Arsenal positives in Cup defeat

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin says there were plenty of positives to draw from their Carling Cup defeat to Manchester City.

Coquelin was one of the stand-out performers alongside midfield partner Emmanuel Frimpong and the Frenchman was proud of Arsenal's display.

"It was a really good effort, I thought we did really well," he told Arsenal Player.

"Manchester City played a strong side and it was a hard game but we did well and we're disappointed to lose. In the first half we did well and we had a strong second half.

"We will take the positives from tonight when we look back at it. We have learned a lot. When you play in front of this crowd there is always something for us to learn."
