Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that Rob Holding suffered a serious knee injury during the team’s draw with Manchester United.
The Gunners played a 2-2 draw with United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night but Holding was stretchered off nine minutes from the interval after a coming together with Marcus Rashford.
But Emery, who revealed the extent of Holding’s injury, had better news for Arsenal fans, when he said Aaron Ramsey didn’t suffer a similar fate.
He said, according to Sky Sports:
“It’s the worst news for us today. We are going to wait for the doctor but maybe it’s a big injury with his knee.”
“Aaron Ramsey is a small injury but after these two injuries, every player responded with good commitment and good mentality to keep in the difficult moments our performance in the game.”
Holding appeared in 16 games for Arsenal in all competitions this season with captain and first choice centre-back Laurent Koscielny still out with an injury.
The Gunners continue their 20 games unbeaten following their draw at Old Trafford but slipped to fifth on the Premier League table.
