Arsenal injury blow: Club ‘fear’ season-ending injury for Rob Holding

Big blow for Arsenal and Holding

Arsenal have suffered a big injury blow with the news that Rob Holding could have suffered a season-ending injury in the game against Manchester United.

The Englishman has started 15 games so far this season, becoming somewhat of a regular under Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

Holding has predominantly been played in a three at the back formation and has impressed so far this campaign.

Though, it looks as though his season has come to an early end.

The player was stretchered off in the game against Manchester United on Wednesday after suffering a serious looking knee injury.

Unai Emery confirmed in his press conference on Thursday that the player had suffered a ‘big injury’ with his knee but didn’t give much more details than that.

“We are going to wait for the doctor but maybe it’s a big injury with his knee,” he explained. 

Now, it looks like the doctor has confirmed the bad news if reports on Thursday are to be believed.

Season-ending injury for the defender

That is because according to multiple reports, including from the Daily Mail, the club fear Holding’s season is over.

They claim that following tests to determine the extent of the injury, Arsenal are now worried.

It is thought that Holding could actually have damaged his cruciate which could mean spending the rest of the season on the sidelines.

However, it is also claimed that Arsenal will hope for some positive news over the next 24 hours before confirming the extent of Holding’s problems.

Dependent on the extent, we won’t be seeing Holding in an Arsenal shirt for a while.
