Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Koscielny's performance against Chelsea

Arsenal lost 2-0 to Chelsea this weekend but what did Gunners fans think of Laurent Koscielny's contribution?

Arsenal had a match to forget this weekend when they lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Goals from Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard only told part of the story, with Arsenal finishing the match with nine men after Gabriel Paulista and Santi Cazorla had both been sent off.

Gabriel was dismissed for flicking a foot at Diego Costa, while Cazorla was shown a second yellow card after a foul on Cesc Fabregas, but it was the Chelsea striker’s battle with Laurent Koscielny that will generate most of the post-match conversation.

Costa clashed with Koscielny in an incident that could easily have seen the Spanish international sent off, but the Frenchman’s calm reaction probably saved the Chelsea star and changed the course of the match in the process.

Koscielny tried his best to keep Chelsea’s attacking stars at bay after his side played the second half with 10 men and the last 12 minutes with only nine, but it was to no avail.

After the match we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of Koscielny’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
