Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is looking forward to coming up against Liverpool striker Christian Benteke tonight.
The pair will face off at the Emirates in the Premier League match that kicks off at 8pm.
And the France international centre-back is aware of the battle he has on his hands in keeping Benteke quiet.
“We had a good game against Aston Villa in the FA Cup final but the other games against Benteke will be harder.” he said.
“I know him and every game is hard against him. He’s a big professional who gives his all for the team and to score.
“He loves the duels and he loves the goal so it will be harder this time. Just because we won by three or four against a team last season doesn’t mean you will again.
“We can do it again, but each game you need to improve yourself so you are ready to win.” he finished.
Koscielny has been Arsenal’s best defender over the last couple of seasons and will be likely to mark the big Belgian striker this evening.
