Rob Holding out for the rest of the season

Rob Holding out for the rest of the season

Arsenal have been very impressive recently as they managed to secure all three points in the North London derby and grabbed a point at Old Trafford. 

Unai Emery will be hoping that his side can carry their momentum with them into tomorrow’s game as they take on Huddersfield Town at the Emirates.

However, the Gunners did suffer a huge setback on the injury front recently, as according to Sun Sport, Rob Holding is expected to be out for the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

The central defender was taken off on a stretcher in the first half at Old Trafford, and it’s thought that the 23-year-old has suffered cruciate-ligament damage that could rule him out for several months.

Holding had established himself as one of the standout performers for Arsenal this season, sparking talk of a senior call-up for the Three Lions. But, he will now have to wait to secure a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad.

THE VERDICT:

A huge blow for Unai Emery, just as his side were starting to build up ahead of steam.

Arsenal will be gutted to see Rob Holding sidelined for such a long period of time, having witnessed his incredible performances in the side this season.

The Gunners will hope that this doesn’t affect their momentum at this point in their season, with Stephan Lichtsteiner likely to enjoy a run in the side in his absence.
