Laurent Koscielny readily admits that the last couple of weeks have been challenging for us – but he feels we’re back on the rise ahead of Wednesday’s game against Bayern Munich.

Defeats at home to Watford and away at Chelsea frustrated everyone at the club, so it was crucial to beat Hull City on Saturday, particularly ahead of the clash at Allianz Arena.

“We stay focused on our jobs [during times of adversity],” Koscielny said at our pre-match press conference. “We stay tough. It’s important that we respond well together.

“We know that we have to keep going until the end of the season, even through the bad moments.

“We have a good squad and we responded well to the two defeats against Watford and Chelsea.

“At the weekend we didn’t play well, but the win was very important for our confidence. We can take that into the game against Bayern.”
