Lauren Koscielny sends Twitter message to Arsenal star after Leicester win

Laurent Koscielny was a happy man after Danny Welbeck's winner for Arsenal...

Laurent Koscielny has taken to social media to congratulate Danny Welbeck on scoring the winning goal after the striker came off the bench to net Arsenal’s second goal in the 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Sunday,

Koscielny played the first 45 minutes against the Foxes at Emirates Stadium but was forced off at half-time after suffering a dead leg in the opening exchanges.

He was replaced by Calum Chambers as the north London side battled back into the game and secured the three points thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Welbeck.

The former Manchester United striker was making his first appearance of the season following his lengthy lay-off with a knee injury.

And Koscielny was clearly thrilled to see Welbeck secure the win and Arsenal take the three points in such dramatic fashion.

Koscielny tweeted on Sunday afternoon:
