‘Superb’, ‘Excellent’: Some Arsenal fans praise 25-year-old’s performance vs Manchester United – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Some Arsenal fans on Twitter have reacted positively to the performance of Rob Holding against Manchester United last night.
The 25-year-old has been one of the club’s most consistent players over the past month and he produced another solid defensive display.
The centre-back won four duels, two tackles and 10 clearances (six more than any other player on the night).
This has pleased some of the club’s faithful and here are few reactions on Twitter after the goalless stalemate at the Emirates Stadium.
Holding recently put pen-to-paper on a new long-term deal with the Gunners. He is now regarded as one of the first names on the teamsheet.
The defender has played with multiple partners at the heart of the backline, but David Luiz now appears as Mikel Arteta’s preferred choice alongside him.
The Gunners have kept clean sheets in six of their last seven league games and have stayed unbeaten in this period with 17 points gained.
They were a bit fortuitous against the Red Devils with Edinson Cavani squandering two gilt-edged chances and ultimately, a goalless draw was not a bad result.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (quarantine), Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney (minor injuries) missed the game and Arteta will be hoping to have them back as soon as possible.
