Koscielny will be eased back gently, though, with Emery explaining: 'It's not easy for him to play three matches in one week, and we pushed him and he was playing three matches during the week, but not ninety minutes each match'. "We can only loan players".
He added: "The club is working, telling me each moment different situations can happen".
"I know the club is working to find players who can help us, with this condition". But at the moment I don't have news on that. "My last conversation with him is very important", Emery said. I asked in the last match at Blackpool (in the FA Cup) if he is okay to help us play and he said, "Yeah, coach, I want to play" and he played with a very big commitment to us.
"His future belongs to him, his family and agent".
"I want his behaviour and his focus to be on West Ham on Saturday".
Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League, just outside the Champions League qualification places, and play West Ham United away tomorrow lunchtime.
Spurs announced yet another delay to their new stadium this week, with the North London derby on March 2 now the first possible fixture to be played there.
