Arsenal defender Francis Coquelin is desperate to put the Gunners’ 2-1 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos behind them and claim victory against West Brom on Sunday.

The north Londoners have been out of form in the Premier League and are currently 10th in the table and need a win against the Baggies to kickstart their season.

“We started really well, we had a great first half and when you are winning 1-0 away you want to hold on to the result,” he told the club’s official website.

“We dropped a little bit and they scored two goals, so we are really disappointed.

“It is a tough place but let’s not forget we are Arsenal and when you come here, everyone wants to win [against you].

“We could have come back with a win so we are very frustrated.

“But now we have to concentrate on the next game; we have a really important match against West Brom and we want to get the three points.

“We had a few bad results recently, so we need the three points at the weekend.”
