Koscielny not setting targets

Arsene Wenger’s side have made a disappointing start to the 2011/12

campaign and are currently 15th in the table, having picked up just

seven points from as many games. The Gunners’ chances of winning

the title appear to be slim as they are already 12 points off the

pace, and their aim is now supposed to be garnering a top-four

spot. Koscielny, though, has refused to set any specific target and

told Arsenal’s official website: “We don’t talk about particular

ambitions. “We just want to win, play our football and like that we

can go towards the top of the table. We don’t think about whether

we are in the top four, we take it game by game. “I think we have

the quality,” continued the Frenchman. “The team has good players

but the difficulty is playing together – to defend and attack

together. “It’s the little details that will be the difference in

winning the games.” Arsenal host Sunderland at the Emirates in the

league on Sunday afternoon, and the 26-year-old is eying a home

victory. “We go onto the pitch on Sunday with a good spirit and we

want to win the game,” enthused Koscielny. “It is very important

for us, for the club and for the supporters.” Koscielny is also

willing to play at right-back instead of his preferred position in

central defence to compensate for the loss of Bacary Sagna to

injury. “I played right-back when I started my career,” he

explained. “Now it’s maybe seven years since that. “If I have to go

to right back I will give my best for the team and will try to do

the job with my qualities. “It is difficult when you lose Bacary

because he is a strong guy and one of the best players. Behind him

is Carl (Jenkinson) so I think he will play. “I know Carl and when

comes on the pitch he gives everything he can for the team.”
