Rob Holding will be out of action for six to nine months after Arsenal confirmed he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee at Manchester United on Wednesday.
The centre-back suffered the injury falling awkwardly under a challenge from Marcus Rashford and was immediately sent back to London for tests.
Unfortunately, the news is as bad as it can gets when it comes to knee problems. He’ll undergo surgery in the coming days before beginning his rehabilitation.
It’s tremendously sad news for a player who has really impressed this season under the new regime. We wish him all the best with his recovery.
