Laurent Koscielny has warned Arsenal that they will need to improve quickly if they are to have any chance of beating Manchester City on Saturday.

The Gunners went down 2-0 at Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday night but still reached the last 16 of the competition as Group F runners-up.

Arsene Wenger’s men travel to The Etihad on Saturday lunchtime looking to preserve their five-point lead at the top of the table.

But defender Koscielny admits that the north Londoners will have to step up their performance if they are to beat Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

“We need to play much better to win at Manchester City,” Koscielny told Arsenal Player.

“It’s two hard games that await us so it will be difficult because they are two of the best teams and we need some points.

“We are on top of the table so we need to keep this [lead] and December is a very important month in the Premier League. We need to be ready and to fight to win these games.”
