Coquelin Didn't Expect Chance So Soon

Coquelin Didn't Expect Chance So Soon

Francis Coquelin has admitted his surprise at being given a first team shot so early in his Arsenal career. Well first team career at any rate.

Speaking to arsenal.com the youngster said.

'I didn't expect to play that much at the beginning of the season. I came back from the World Cup and then played straight away at Manchester United. He gave me another chance in the Carling Cup and I grabbed it. I think I have done quite well.'

The shining performance was certainly his man of the match against Spurs, and hopefully it's a sign of more things to come from the 20 year old.
