After scoring our one and only goal against Newcastle, Laurent Koscielny confused Per Mertesacker by holding up four fingers on one hand, and one on the other.

Post-match, the Frenchman explained his celebration, saying it was for his brother-in-law’s birthday.

Kos had an excellent game in general. Not only did he score his third goal against Newcastle since signing for Arsenal but was our best defender. He’s easily the best centre-back in the league now and to think how far he’s come is fantastic. No wonder he was so keen to celebrate post-match.
