Lenear said what i wanted to say...

In my eyes they are different characters and can easily play in same formation.

While Frimpong is anchor, Coquelin can be a good B2B.

Frimpong is extremely strong and buff but he needs to calm himself at times. He gets hot headed and will do a rash tackle during a match. And his passing isnt the best either as he loses the ball a lot. But having said that his tackling and aggression are great (if kept under check). And he knows how to shoot as well from distance. Plus opposition players are scared of him by his killer looks Wink

Coquelin seems a bit weak but Arsenal were only losing 3-1 against united when he was on so there maybe a reason for the next 5 goals in 25+ mins. He is rather slow and passes sloppily. But really good tackling wise and knows how to control his aggression.

Coquelin had a beaser of a game but he needs to resist Wenger's instruction to get forward

He is more than just a DM though.. He breaks up play well and protects the back fours [DM's job] plus he has a decent ball distribution!! Very Happy

Coquelin just jumped Frimpong imo.

Had Modric in his backpocket.

Re: Frimpong or Coquelin?

In what was only his second league game (after he made his debut in the 8-2 defeat to Manchester United), Coquelin was yet again thrown into the deep end for his first North London derby, but once again worked hard and came through alive on the other side.

The youngster was one of few Arsenal players to really make a difference, and was one of only two outfield players to achieve a rating above 7 (7.1) from whoscored, together with Aaron Ramsey (7.7).

With Arteta quiet both in the offensive and defensive phase, Coquelin had his hands full trying to pick up the constant movement of Jermain Defoe and Luka Modric, with the former used in a deeper link-up role.

So Arsenal’s young Frenchman had a huge role to play to at least limit the extent to which Defoe was able to link up with boo-boy Emmanuel Adebayor, as well as cutting off the supply to Defoe from Spurs’ primary playmaker; Luka Modric.

In a disjointed and lacklustre midfield display, Arsenal were fortunate that Coquelin was at hand to keep the score down – breaking up play with five tackles, two interceptions and three clearances*.

In possession, Coquelin also impressed – his 87% pass completion* showing his ability to keep a cool head despite the overwhelming occasion. His simple, but effective, distribution play from behind Arteta and Ramsey in the 4-3-3 is also shown by his touch to pass ratio – he made the third most touches (84) for Arsenal, but rarely hesitated or held onto the ball for too long; he also made the third most passes of any Arsenal player (63)*.

Admittedly, Tottenham’s frantic pressing approach and the hard working Jermain Defoe (who himself made four tackles and two fouls*) meant Coquelin couldn’t afford to take too many touches but his neat passing map shows how he rose to the challenge.


by Guardian Chalkboards

Perhaps most impressive of all was Coquelin’s excellent decision-making, however. The ability to make the right decision on a football pitch is often something that young players are forced to learn the hard way, but after a loan spell at Ligue 1 side FC Lorient, Coquelin appears to have come back to Arsenal with all the necessary experience.

Coquelin didn’t concede a single foul (while Frimpong has averaged two fouls per game in the league so far). We can add to that one “last man tackle”, the fact he won all of his tackles and that he was able to find a team-mate with two of his three attempted clearances* and we can see how adept he was at making the right decision; pass or hoof, dive in or hustle, etc.

A loss is a loss, and a loss against Tottenham is worse than any other, but there are always positives to take from games. A young player’s clear determination to succeed and play well for the club is - for me at least - one way to ease the pain of defeat and Francis Coquelin’s display against Spurs epitomised this attitude in all its glory.
