Henry's late goal at Sunderland a massive boost for Arsenal - Koscielny

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny believes the late winner at Sunderland on the weekend will give the players impetus to do well at AC Milan this week.

Thierry Henry netted in injury time to give the Gunners all three points at the Stadium of Light on Saturday and Koscielny says it will have a positive impact prior to Wednesday night's Champions League Round of 16 first leg at the San Siro and the FA Cup fifth round clash with the Black Cats on the weekend.

"It was very important. We lost three games, then beat Blackburn at home and we came here to win," he told the club's official website.

"We played very well. We conceded a strange goal but that's life and we came back and won. That's good for the team and it's better for the games ahead against Milan and Sunderland in the FA Cup.

"Everyone is very happy for Thierry, because he's a good player. The best players can change a game."
