Cape Town - Arsenal are capable of achieving great things this season, defender Laurent Koscielny has said, adding that the squad is reaping the benefits of manager Arsene Wenger's rotation policy.

The Gunners are on a fine run, having won their last four Premier League games, which has seen them rise to second in the table after 10 games, behind leaders Manchester City on goal difference.

Koscielny, who scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over Everton, has been part of the defence that has just conceded eight league goals so far, the joint-lowest in the league.

"I don't know if this is the best Arsenal team I have ever played for but collectively you can tell that we are capable to do great things together," Koscielny told the club's website (www.arsenal.com).

"We need to keep that team spirit and this desire and motivation. Let's keep it this way until the end of the season.

"We know each other's qualities and we know the philosophy of the team. A season is long. So we appreciate having everybody ready to come in. We benefit from the coach's rotation," the 30-year-old Frenchman added.
