Laurent Koscielny contributed to a vital clean sheet for Arsenal in the 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday. Afterwards, he gave his thoughts on the game:
on the win…It was important to win today because we didn’t win the last game, which was difficult. We did the job and it was quite difficult because Everton played very well. Today, we wanted it more and it was important for the confidence for the rest of the season.
on the first goal…When you score the first goal, it is always important for the game. We killed the game with the two goals in the first half. We played on the counter-attack but we could play more with the ball in the second half. When you lose some games, the confidence can go and we came back slowly but today was different.
on stopping Lukaku… When you do a good job defensively, it is good, and today we did so we need to keep this up until the end of the season.
