Benayoun – Frimpong and Coquelin were excellent

Arsenal’s attacking midfielder Yossy Benayoun praised the much younger defensive midfielders at Arsenal Frimpong and Coquelin for their excellent football display in the game against Manchester City. The two managed to annihilate almost every Manchester City threat even though they are still young and have a lot to learn.

“Frimpong played with a lot of confidence and spirit,” Benayoun told

“Also, he had a partner like Francis [Coquelin] in midfield who was very good for him and they controlled it.”

“Manchester City have a lot of quality players and they did a great job. In the end we were unlucky.”
