Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding has been a revelation for Unai Emery's side this season. However, he suffered a potentially devastating blow against Manchester United.

Holding left the pitch at Old Trafford on a stretcher after succumbing to a knee injury and, according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal fear he could be out for the season.

 

The former Bolton Wanderers player's injury is potentially a damaged knee ligament.

It would be a crushing blow for club, player and potentially country, with the 23-year-old establishing himself as an integral cog in Emery's starting XI.

Composed on the ball and a good reader of the game, Holding is a major factor as to why Arsenal have gone 20 matches unbeaten.
