5 underperforming Arsenal players this season
Arsenal are arguably having their worst season ever in the Premier League. The Gunners are currently eight points off the Champions League spots having already been knocked out of the FA cup in the third round by Nottingham Forest.
A nervy League Cup final awaits them against the seemingly unstoppable Manchester City on 25 February and it has been the only positive this season. Wenger's men will be looking at the Europa League as the most realistic way towards Champions League qualification.
In these testing times, a few players have performed well below average and have let down their team multiple times during the season. Let us have a look at them.
#5 Laurent Koscielny
A surprise inclusion on this list considering Laurent Koscielny has been one of Arsenal's most consistent players over the years. However, his recent form has shown that age is catching up with the Frenchman.
Signed from Lorient in 2011 as a raw youngster, Koscielny went on to become one of the best defenders in the Premier League and even attracted interest from top clubs in Europe.
This season, however, he has been in dodgy form. Continuous and silly mistakes have led to Arsenal conceding more goals than any other top six side. Koscielny has been a fan favourite at Arsenal for many years, but sentiments aside, it's better for the club to look for a future replacement.
