Francis Coquelin Equalled A Premier League Record Today
Arsenal fans should be praying to every God they can think of that Francis Coquelin isn't struck down by the injury curse that is surrounding the club. The Frenchman was in inspired form against Everton today and made the most interceptions of any Premier League player since 2013 in a single game.
In stats provided by Squawka, Coquelin made 12 interceptions in a performance that was far more assured than his showing against Spurs in the North London derby. The midfielder was back to his best at Goodison Park and was pivotal in the Gunners' 2-0 success.
