Arsenal fans on Twitter couldn’t get enough of Rob Holding yesterday

Arsenal were the much better side yesterday when they hosted Tottenham at The Emirates. Unai Emery’s side shone in the match and there were a number of star performers for the Gunners.  one of those was Rob Holding, the young defender did a great job to nullify the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli and whilst he won’t get the glory for the win, he certainly deserves a lot of praise.

Holding was sublime in almost every aspect of the game and whilst the penalty he gave away for a supposed foul on Heung-Min Son was a clear blot on his record, the fans are prepared to let that one go as they don’t believe Mike Dean was correct to be pointing to the spot. Instead, the fans are more focused on Holding’s distribution, calmness and solidity at the back as he helped his side grind out a memorable victory.

It was in fact, Holding’s North London derby debut and he didn’t disappoint, partnering up well with Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi in Unai Emery’s back three that he opted to go with against the Lilywhites. It truly was a sublime display from the youngster and the supporters will be keen to see him put in more performances like that in the coming weeks, especially for their next game against Manchester United on Wednesday.
