Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has issued a warning to the side not to get complacent with their impressive run of form in recent weeks. The Gunners recently beat FC Basel 2-0 in the Champions League to seal their sixth win in seven games in all competitions, and talk has been on their chances of winning a major honour as a result.

“When we have good movement, with the quality and speed of our passing and when it is on a high level, we can be a danger in every situation. We have been better for the past two or three weeks and it is very important to keep our feet on the floor, to work and then the results will come,” Koscielny said.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was forced to watch his side flourish in his absence with Wednesday’s 2-0 win over FC Basel being the Gunners’ sixth consecutive win in all competitions.

Arsenal look to end a five-year winless record against Chelsea on Saturday evening, and will fancy their chances of ending the barren run with how poor the Blues’ defence has been in recent weeks.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has a selection headache in attack ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea, with Lucas Perez and Alexis Sanchez in the frame to lead the line in Olivier Giroud’s absence.

Summer-signing Lucas scored a brace in the EFL Cup in midweek but has only racked up 64 minutes of Premier League playing time.
