Francis Coquelin has declared that Arsenal face a huge week ahead.
The young fullback believes that a victory at Sunderland would help add to the head of steam Arsenal are building ahead of Wednesday’s clash against AC Milan.
“We just need to win [these big games]. We showed great character against Blackburn and we should have won against Bolton as we had the chances,” he told a Chinese fans’ webchat on arsenal.com.
“We have Sunderland at the weekend, so we need to go on a run and win that game so we take a lot of confidence for the trip to Milan.
“We have a great team, it is getting better and better and we can get some good results over the next few weeks.”
