Soccer – Koscielny warns misfiring Gunners

Laurent Koscielny has told Arsenal they will need to show better form if they are secure a Champions League spot by winning the Europa League. The Gunners ensured a semi-final spot by completing a 6-3 aggregate win over CSKA Moscow, but they were one goal away from potential elimination during the second leg in the Russian capital before Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey found the net. And Koscielny accepts that the performance was not of the standard required if the Londoners are to triumph in the Europa League, with the Gunners 9/4 with bet365 to win the tournament. He told BT Sport: "I am happy because we came back, but our performance was not (good) enough for this stage of the competition. "We will see the draw, but need more confidence in our game. It is important for the club to go far. It is our last chance to qualify for the Champions League, so we will fight until the end."
